Net Zero: We have a court date

17th March 2022

A date has now been set for the substantive hearing in our Net Zero legal challenge. We will be going to court on 8 and 9 June this year, alongside ClientEarth and Friends of the Earth, who have also brought claims in relation to the Government’s Net Zero Strategy. By giving permission to bring a judicial review, the High Court has acknowledged how important the Net Zero commitment in the Climate Change Act is.

We launched this challenge because we believe it is essential that the Government has proper, data-driven plans to ensure the UK confronts the climate crisis. As it stands, the Net Zero Strategy is woefully inadequate and falls well short of meeting the Government’s legal obligations under the Climate Change Act. 

The climate crisis is happening now, on our own shores, and we must do all we can to combat it. Our lawyers will be working hard to prepare for the hearing in June. 

We are grateful for any support you can give.

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.
