AIG Global Trade Series 2022 Podcast Episode 6

How to Use Trade Policy to Meet the Climate Challenge


In this podcast, they discuss how to use trade policy to meet the climate challenge.
The meeting of trade and climate policy is a dynamic area of discussion. How can trade policy be used to lower emissions? How can the global emissions embedded in internationally traded goods be reduced? Without resorting to protectionism, how can carbon leakage be addressed so industries that produce goods in a more sustainable way are not penalised?
