Shell is one of the biggest climate polluters in the world. This transnational company has known about the severity of climate change and the impacts of oil and gas drilling for decades, but has not only misled the public on the issue, it continues drilling for fossil fuels. Across the world Shell’s climate wrecking activities are leaving a trail of devastation, from Nigeria to the Netherlands. We cannot save the climate if large corporations continue to pollute the planet. This is why Friends of the Earth Netherlands is taking Shell to court.
This historic case could set a powerful legal precedent: if we win, one of the world’s biggest polluters will have to stop wrecking the climate.
The stakes are high and we need your support. Dutch citizens can join the lawsuit as co-claimants, but this case is in the interest of people worldwide who are already experiencing the severe impacts of climate change. We need the rest of the world to stand with Friends of the Earth Netherlands as we take Shell to court. Please add your name to support Friends of the Earth Netherlands’ legal case against Shell.
