Climate change litigation - Philippines investigates carbon majors’ responsibility for human rights breaches

Environment analysis: Legal proceedings have been launched in the Philippines to investigate the responsibility
of a group of carbon majors for human rights violations or threats of violations resulting from the impacts of
climate change. Lawyers and project leaders at ClientEarth and Greenpeace discuss this case in the context of
climate change litigation and say it would be a grave injustice for the courts to deny remedies to the victims of
climate change whose nations and communities have often made the smallest contribution to global greenhouse
gas emissions.
