Amy Rose Email: Contact 67 Today, ClientEarth teams are working on 168 active cases worldwide tackling the most pressing environmental challenges. About ClientEarth ClientEarth is a non-profit organisation that uses the law to create systemic change that protects the Earth for – and with – its inhabitants. It is tackling climate change, protecting nature and stopping pollution, with partners and citizens around the globe. ClientEarth holds industries and governments to account and defends everyone’s right to a healthy world. From its offices in Europe, Asia and the USA it shapes, implements and enforces the law to build a future for our planet in which people and nature can thrive together. Over the last 15 years, this unique approach to climate action has made ClientEarth one of the world’s most effective environmental organisations. ClientEarth has helped to block polluting coal power plants across Europe, transforming the future of energy. ClientEarth's court victory against the UK government over its failure to address illegal levels of air pollution forced it to tackle dirty air and helped lead to the introduction of a clean air zone, reducing levels of toxic NO2 by over a third in London. Legal action brought with local partners in Germany and Brussels also prompted measures to improve air quality monitoring, reduce transport-related air pollution and increased consequences for government officials failing to take action. ClientEarth’s work in China training judges, prosecutors and NGOs on environmental law has contributed to over 100,000 cases being brought against polluters to date. Today, ClientEarth legal teams are working on 168 active cases worldwide, tackling the most pressing environmental challenges. For example, in 2021, ClientEarth's ground-breaking legal action has resulted in a plethora of wins for the climate and nature: - Petrochemical giant Ineos suspended plans for one of two major new plastics production units in Antwerp, Belgium. - UK energy company Drax confirmed it would abandon plans to build what would have been Europe’s largest gas plant. - The European Commission started new proceedings against the Polish government for its continued failure to protect Bialowieza, Europe’s oldest forest. - The European Court of Justice confirmed that the EU illegally allowed the sale of dangerous substances in paints when there were safer options, setting a precedent that tightens the screws on companies’ use of toxic chemicals. - The Brussels regional government was forced to take immediate action to tackle air pollution after Belgian Courts found it failed to correctly monitor and protect the health of its citizens against harmful levels of major pollutants.
