Royal Dutch Shell said it will change strategy after a court ruling forcing it to cut its emissions. It’s a landmark case, brought by climate campaigners. For the first time, an oil giant has been legally obliged to adjust its policies to save the planet. British-Dutch multinational Shell now says it plans to speed up its plans to cut greenhouse gas emissions in response to the ruling. Last month, the company was ordered by a court in The Hague to reduce emissions by 45% by 2030. Environmentalists say Shell is obliged to bring its business into line with the 2015 Paris climate accord. What does it mean for oil and gas industry?
