    Royal Dutch Shell said it will change strategy after a court ruling forcing it to cut its emissions.

    Proposed Summary (Max 100 words) 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.
