Today Friends of the Earth Netherlands received Shell's long awaited re-sponse to the legal summons demanding it acts on climate change. While lawyers still need to study the 272 page legal document in detail, the response shows that Shell does not intend to meet the plaintiffs' demands.

Friends of the Earth Netherlands' Director Donald Pols says, "Shell once again takes no responsibility for the disproportionate role it plays in aggravating the climate crisis. Shell is undermining the world's chanc-es to stay below 1.5°C."

Communities are already experiencing the impacts of man-made climate change, especially in the Global South, but also increasingly here in Europe. The overconsumption of resources is contributing to the crisis and increasing inequality within and between countries.

Europe was largely responsible for causing climate change. Friends of the Earth Europe believes European and other rich industrialised countries must do their fair share to act first and fastest to combat it in ways that do not deepen social injustice.

Real solutions to climate change are available. We are working to strengthen a movement for climate justice and create a fossil-free Europe.
