Shell is one of the biggest climate polluters in the world. Friends of the Earth Netherlands together with over 17,000 Dutch citizens and 6 organisations who joined the case as co-plaintiffs (De Waddenvereniging, Young Friends of the Earth NL, BothENDs, Greenpeace NL, Fossielvrij NL and ActionAid NL) will be handing the court summons to Shell on the 5th of April 2019.

Shell has known about the severity of climate change and the wider impacts of oil and gas drilling for decades. This multinational continues drilling for fossil fuels. Across the world Shell’s climate wrecking activities are leaving a trail of devastation, expanding to new areas for exploitation in the deep sea, protected reserve areas and indigenous peoples’ territories.

This petition aims to stop large corporations from polluting the planetPeople worldwide are already experiencing the severe impacts of climate change, especially the most marginalised and vulnerable. We need to stop large corporations from polluting the planet, destroying ecosystems and violating humans rights.

This legal action is of global significance. It is supported by Friends of the Earth International and over 17,000 people from 70 countries have joined the case against Shell as honorary co-plaintiffs
