In the last quarter of 2020 we published under the auspices of A&O Belgium’s Sustainability Flagship Project, an overview analysing the status of current climate change litigation in courts around the world in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.

In that publication, we identified a number of emerging trends concerning litigation against states as well as against companies. Several months on and with the pandemic still in full swing, this contribution seeks to provide a concise update and examine which of these trends have gained further traction by analysing certain recent and highly topical court decisions.
