On 20 September 2010, ClientEarth, Transport & Environment, the European Environmental Bureau, and BirdLife International brought a lawsuit challenging the European Commission's failure to release documents containing previously undisclosed information on the negative climate impacts of widespread biofuels use in the European Union.  It is the second time this coalition has sued for lack of transparency on EU biofuels policy.
