NGO threatens Shell with lawsuit over climate 'destruction'

An environmental campaign group on Wednesday threatened to take Anglo-Dutch oil giant Royal Dutch Shell to court should it fail to comply with climate targets set out under the Paris Agreement.

"Friends of the Earth Netherlands announced today that they will take Shell to court if it does not act on demands to stop its destruction of the climate," the group said in a statement, accusing the firm of being "among the ten biggest climate polluters worldwide".

Shell did not respond to requests for comment from AFP on the threatened lawsuit.
