Net Zero: The Government must take the climate crisis seriously

The Government had a woefully inadequate Net Zero strategy. We challenged it at the High Court and won. Now they have a deadline of spring this year to come up with a serious plan to tackle the climate crisis.

Case overview

The Government’s strategy for getting to Net Zero was inadequate and unlawful, the High Court found in July 2022, following a successful legal challenge brought by Good Law Project, Joanna Wheatley, Client Earth and Friends of the Earth.

The Climate Change Act requires Government to hit Net Zero by 2050, to make proposals as to how it will meet that target, and to place a report before Parliament.
