Milieudefensie et al v Royal Dutch Shell was a court case heard by the district court of The Hague in the Netherlands in 2021 related to efforts by multinational corporations to curtail carbon dioxide emissions. In May 2021, the Hague ordered that Royal Dutch Shell must reduced its global carbon emissions from its 2019 levels by 45% by 2030; it is considered the first major climate change litigation ruling against a corporation.
