ClientEarth is a non-profit European environmental organisation based in London, with offices in Brussels, Paris and Warsaw. We are activist lawyers working at the interface of law, science and policy. Using the power of the law, we develop legal strategies and tools to address major environmental issues.
ClientEarth brings world-class legal expertise to protect the environment in the EU and beyond, creating innovative solutions to environmental problems. Many of our lawyers have interdisciplinary expertise in the policy and scientific areas on which our programmes are based. We work on legislation, advise NGOs, law- and policy-makers, and use the courts where necessary to enforce environmental law. We strive to bring a dynamic approach to effecting environmental change by harnessing the power of the law.
As legal experts working in the public interest, we act to strengthen the work of our partner organisations. Our work covers climate change and energy system transformation, health and environment, protection of oceans, biodiversity and tropical forests, and environmental justice. We are rapidly emerging as the leading environmental law organisation in Europe.
ClientEarth addresses the development of EU policy and legislation for the public interest, across five major programme areas, as set out below.
1. Environmental Law and Justice: The Aarhus Convention on Access to Information, Public Participation in Decision-making and Access to Justice in Environmental Matters at the EU and Member State levels including Regulation 1367/2006, Regulation (EC) 1049/2001 regarding access to European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, the Commission’s proposal for a revision of Regulation (EC) 1049/2001. Enforcement of EU environmental law. The Commission has developed a general policy towards “Better monitoring of the application of Community Law” [Commission Communication Better monitoring the application of Community Law COM (2002) 725 final]. This Communication derives from the discussion on the White Paper on European Governance COM (2001) 428 final, which focused on improving the quality and monitoring of legislation] since 2002, which was further developed in another Communication in 2007 entitled "A Europe of Results" (the 2007 Communication)[ Commission Communication A Europe of results COM (2007) 502 final, page 7, point 3 seeking a more efficient management of infringements ]. In 2008, the Commission issued a new Communication [Commission Communication on implementing European Community Environmental Law COM (2008) 773 final] (the 2008 Communication) explaining how these policy lines would be applied to environmental cases. The current policy is insufficient in terms of actions at EU level. A new proposal is expected for early next year.
