Grainger plc v Nicholson UKEAT/219/09; [2009] WLR (D) 315

“An asserted philosophical belief that mankind was heading towards catastrophic climate change and therefore people were under a moral duty to lead their lives in a manner which mitigated or avoided that catastrophe for the benefit of future generations, and to persuade others to do the same, if genuinely held was capable of amounting to a ‘philosophical belief’ for the purpose of the Employment Equality (Religion or Belief) Regulations 2003.”
