26-5-2021: The Dutch court just ordered Royal Dutch Shell to reduce their net CO2e-emissions by 45% before the end of 2030.

The reference year is 2019, where they emitted ~70 million tonnes of CO2-equivalent (chart 1, reports.shell.com/sustainabili).

This means Shell will have to reduce their emissions to ~31,5 million tonnes of CO2-equivalent before 2030 (chart 2).
