Climate activists' lawsuit successful: Climate protection law must be improved

The German Federal Constitutional Court has responded to a lawsuit filed by climate activists and ruled that parts of the German Climate Protection Act are unconstitutional. In doing so, the court took up the calls of scientists and environmental organizations to improve the framework conditions for achieving the Paris climate targets. In particular, the court judged the postponement of important greenhouse gas reduction milestones until after 2030 to be an infringement of freedom. For the renewable sector, the ruling is of great importance, as it is expected that the necessary improvements will make it easier to plan measures.
