Ingrid Gubbay recognised in ENDS Top 100 Power List 2022 for environment
The inaugural ENDS Power List 100 UK includes Ingrid Gubbay as one of the top environmental influencers who has made the greatest impact in the past two years.
The vast majority of finalists were put forward by ENDS’ readership. The individuals who made the final list have shaped or influenced national or local environmental policy, or their actions may have enhanced the reputation of the environmental profession.

The ENDS Report noted:
“Ingrid conducts strategic public/private law litigation and advice, both domestically and internationally, on behalf of communities affected by large-scale corporate violations. She is an active member of the Global Climate Litigation network. She regularly acts for a wide range of organisations, including WWF, Client Earth, climate activists and campaigners in the area of gender justice.
In 2019, Gubbay spearheaded Hausfield’s petition to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child on behalf of 16 young people (including Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg) in a climate-related case.
She was also heavily involved in the process of calling for a binding EU law to hold companies to account when they harm human rights, the environment and good governance, and to guarantee victims access to legal remedies. The European Parliament adopted the initiative in March 2021, paving the way for this to become law.”
With many thanks to the ENDS Report and congratulations to all individuals mentioned.
