Carbon Delivery Budget Plan: High Court Ruling

15 May 2024, 10:00 am to 10:30 am


Rob Williams, Nina Pindham



In a judgment handed down on 3 May, Mr Justice Sheldon upheld the judicial review challenge by Friends of the Earth, ClientEarth and the Good Law Project to the lawfulness of the Carbon Budget Delivery Plan (CBDP). The CBDP is required by the Climate Change Act 2008 (CCA) and it outlines how the Government considers its policies and proposals will enable the carbon budgets set under the CCA to be met. The carbon budgets represent critical staging posts on the path to net zero.

With Rob Williams and Nina Pindham, who were both instructed in the case.
