American Security Project – Green Trade: Aligning Policy and Climate Goals
The urgency of climate change is propelling decisionmakers at every level of the global economy to reevaluate the carbon footprint of production and consumption networks. With trade policy, they are finding opportunities to build environmentally sustainable and resilient supply chains, to offer market-based incentives for investment into renewable energy technologies as an offset to the emissions of international trade, and to ultimately make the green economy a profitable and attractive pursuit. In a world driven by economic growth, trade policy is perhaps the most potent tool for inducing the seismic socio-economic shifts necessary to limit climate change.
The American Security Project is pleased to host a conversation with The Rt Hon. the Lord Barker of Battle and Ambassador Daniel Sepulveda to discuss aligning climate change goals with trade policy.
