Reconciling Trade Policy and Climate Goals

This session of the AICGS-KAS Transatlantic Trade Week examines three key issues. One is the prospects for climate-friendly progress in the WTO, such as the Environmental Goods Agreement, and subsidies rules that discourage fossil fuel use and promote renewable energy. Another is the resilience of supply chains and the potential for transatlantic cooperation to promote sustainability within them. Finally, it looks at how a joint U.S.-EU approach to a carbon border adjustment mechanism could take shape and potentially be expanded to other like-minded countries.
