Air Quality Strategy: Our lawsuit overcomes delay in updating the 5-year plan

Israel’s Clean AIr Law (2011) provides for the Ministry of Environmental Protection to lead on developing and implementing a comprehensive National AIr Quality Strategy. It is the central instrument of the law; if not updated at regular intervals (5-years in this case) the law is less effective in tackling the wide range of air pollutants emitted from industry, energy production and transportation.

After repeated warnings that the Ministry was lax in keeping up with its regulatory responsibilities, we filed in early 2021 a public interest petition to the Supreme Court sitting as the High Court of Justice.
