Former head of sustainability at Grainger wins £42,200 after claim climate change views led to loss of job

The head of sustainability at Grainger won a £42,200 out of court settlement after he was made redundant over his views on green issues.

Tim Nicholson, 42, won the landmark ruling at a central London employment tribunal this month after he challenged the residential landlord over his treatment.

Nicholson alleged that he was made redundant in July 2008 after his opinions on climate change differed to other senior executives at the firm.

He was claiming a total of £756,615 in compensation, including £587,925 for loss of earnings and £20,000 for injury to his personal feelings.
