In this third episode, we explore the Hague Court's 2021 ruling in the Royal Dutch Shell case, which found that Shell has a legal obligation to reduce CO2 emissions by 45 per cent by 2030 compared to 2019 levels. Léone Klapwijk from the Dutch law firm Van Doorne joins the podcast to discuss how this ruling was established, what has been the corporate and NGO reaction in Europe since then, and what it all means for the industry in the Netherlands, Europe, and potentially beyond.
