NGOs Sue U.K. Government over Insufficient and Impractical Climate Plans

The Index Today

NGOs in the United Kingdom have started legal proceedings against the government over allegedly unrealistic targets of drastically reducing the carbon footprint that would be insufficient in averting a climate crisis in the future.

ClientEarth and Friends of the Earth are two NGOs that are suing the government over their net zero strategy. The filings state that the U.K.’s current proposed strategies to counter climate change are unfounded and will only serve to stall the implementation of effective action.

Prior to hosting COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland, the U.K. had presented its plans to cut emissions, a move which was lauded by its Climate Change Committee.

However, Katie de Kauwe, a lawyer Friends of the Earth lawyer, argues “With characteristic sleight of hand the government has set out an imaginary pathway for reducing carbon emissions but no credible plan to deliver it.”
