We’re taking the government to court to #StopRosebank

The #StopRosebank campaign is taking the government to court over its catastrophic decision to approve Rosebank.

In September, the UK government approved the development of the controversial Rosebank oil field. Rosebank is not compatible with a safe climate or liveable future.

We believe that this decision is not just morally and economically wrong, but unlawful. The government’s claim that drilling Rosebank is compatible with the UK’s obligations and a safe climate doesn't add up - and we will prove it in court.

We’re filing not just one, but two cases against the government so we can #StopRosebank. Two separate cases have been filed against the decision, one by Uplift, the other by Greenpeace UK, and both will be heard in the Court of Session in Edinburgh.

The cases will argue that:

  • The government has failed to assess the emissions generated from burning Rosebank’s oil
  • Rosebank is not compatible with the UK’s own plan for a safe climate
  • It’s not enough for the government to just say that it is, it needs to prove it.
