Virtual Event

Event Summary

As global temperatures rise and greenhouse gas emissions increase, all sectors of the economy must contribute to the green energy transition. Several trade agreements have special chapters on sustainability, and measures are being taken to make supply chains greener. We see different versions of carbon pricing emerging, and business is doing more to apply due diligence. But obviously more needs to be done.

How can trade contribute to more sustainable supply chains and facilitate wider access to green technology?
