Shell to boldly go and speed up emission cuts as Dutch court ruling bites

Oil and gas major Shell has pledged to take some ‘bold but measured’ steps to accelerate the reduction of carbon emissions from its operations following a recent, historic ruling by a Dutch court, ordering the company to speed up its energy transition efforts.

On 26 May 2021, a Dutch court ordered Shell to deepen its carbon emissions cuts in a ruling described as the first-of-its-kind. The case was unique in that it was the first time for a court to order a company to comply with the Paris Climate Agreement.
