Jelmer Mommers (b. 1987) reports on climate change for De Correspondent. In 2017 he made world news when he unearthed an old climate film made by Shell. In 2018 he published internal Shell documents, which later provided the basis for Milieudefensie’s (Environmental defense) lawsuit against the Dutch company. Previously Mommers worked as a researcher and online editor at De Groene Amsterdammer, the investigative journalism platform Investico and De Gids.
