The Government’s Net Zero Strategy does not meet its obligations under the Climate Change Act to produce detailed climate policies, a High Court ruling has found.
The ruling follows a hearing at the Royal Courts of Justice in June, which considered the legal challenges brought by Friends of the Earth, ClientEarth, Good Law Project and environmental campaigner Jo Wheatley.
The judgment came on Monday 18 July, the same day as the Met Office’s first ever red alert for extreme heat.
