James Thornton

CEO, Client Earth

Named one of 10 people who could change the world, James and his environmental law firm ClientEarth continue to hold central and local government to account on air pollution, mandating the need for robust plans to tackle roadside emissions. ClientEarth has won three cases against the UK government over the country’s illegal and harmful levels of air pollution, which has resulted in a surge of activity from local authorities to investigate and identify measures to tackle illegal levels of pollution.
