In its Case of the Century decision, issued on the 3rd of February 2021, the Paris Administrative court acknowledged the French State's responsibility in the climate crisis. It also recognised that it was illegal for the State not to respect its commitments in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The Court also stated that the State is accountable for the environmental damage (per se). An additional decision is to come in the spring: the Court may sentence the Government to take additional climate measures.

The organisations bringing the Case of the Century stated, "More than two years after the start of our action, supported by 2,3 million people, this decision marks the first historic victory for climate and a major step forward in French law. This decision is also a victory for the truth: until now, the State denied its lack of action on climate change, despite accumulating evidence of the contrary (regular passing of carbon caps, even reports by governmental agencies or advisory councils...). The Court recognises that the new "Climate" bill is not sufficient to reach currently fixed objectives. We very much hope that justice will not limit itself to recognising the State's fault, but will also force it to take concrete measures to respect its climate commitments."
