On September 15, 2020, Greenpeace Spain, Oxfam Intermón, and Ecologistas en Acción filed suit against the Spanish Government, alleging failure to take adequate action on climate change. The plaintiffs assert that Spain is in violation of Regulation (EU) 2018/1999 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 December 2018 on the Governance of the Energy Union and Climate Action. According to plaintiffs, by last December Spain should have approved a National Energy and Climate Plan and Long Term Strategy; and the draft plan is not consistent with the Paris Agreement and IPCC recommendations to keep global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. According to news reports, the complaint seeks an order compelling greater climate action.
