This week ClientEarth spoke in court in support of the Polish Ombudsman, in a case challenging the Polish Environment Minister’s decision to increase logging in the Bialowieza Forest.
Europe’s oldest forest is facing a renewed threat, after the Polish government confirmed it will continue with illegal plans to massively increase logging.
The Polish Government has just two weeks to adopt a new water law. If it does not, it faces fines of millions of euros – not to mention the risk that the EU will stop giving subsidies to Poland.
Judges in Poland have agreed with ClientEarth, revoking a permit to build a huge new coal-fired power station in the country.
The Polish Environment Minister has written to environment ministers from the other 27 EU countries on Białowieża Forest. His letter contains multiple inaccurate or misleading statements.
