UK climate plan deemed (once again) illegal – POLITICO

This plan was itself a response to a previous successful legal challenge.

ClientEarth said Energy Secretary Claire Coutinho is now “expected to have to develop a new climate strategy within 12 months”, adding: “We will be watching”.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, speaking to Sky News, said he had not yet seen the judgment but added: “I am proud of our record, we have decarbonised faster than any other major economy in the world. world… But last year, I set out a more pragmatic approach to reaching net zero. Of course we believe in it, I want to make it happen, but we’re going to do it in a way that doesn’t saddle families with bills that we don’t need.

A Department of Energy Security and Net Zero spokesperson said the case was “largely about process” and the judgment contained “no criticism of the detailed plans we have put in place”.

“We do not believe that legal action regarding the process represents the best way to progress towards our shared goal of reaching net zero,” the spokesperson added.

But ClientEarth lawyer Sam Hunter Jones said the courts “have now told the UK government, not once but twice, that its climate strategy is not fit for purpose”.
