ClientEarth v Board of Directors of Shell plc - Legal Briefing

This legal briefing sets out the basis of ClientEarth’s claim against Shell’s Board of Directors, by reference to the key claim documents. We give an overview of the context in which the claim was brought, the reasons why ClientEarth alleged that Shell’s Board had breached its legal duties, and the findings of the High Court of England and Wales. We address each of the Court’s core findings in turn, and set out why ClientEarth believes that the dismissal of the claim is a missed opportunity.
