Two directors of the environmental group Greenpeace, along with a climate activist, have filed a lawsuit against German automaker Volkswagen in Brunswick, claiming that the carmaker did not promote climate protection.
Applicants claim that the carbon dioxide emitted by Volkswagen makes a significant contribution to the climate crisis and its consequences. They argue that the car manufacturer’s business model does not fit in with the goal of controlling global warming to 1.5 degrees.
Applicants say Volkswagen should stop selling cars with internal combustion engines worldwide by 2030.
Proponents of her case have been working to make the actual transcript of this statement available online.
Volkswagen has not yet commented on the matter, but the company has previously stated that it wants to become a carbon-neutral car maker by 2050.
