On 2 October, during his hearing in the European Parliament, Executive Vice-President Valdis Dombrovskis announced a possible Trade and Climate initiative in the World Trade Organization (WTO).

This Civil Society Dialogue will outline in more detail the Commission’s proposal on the possible trade and climate initiative in the WTO and will allow for an exchange of views with the EU Civil Society Organisations.

In line with the objectives of the European Green Deal, this initiative aims at advancing environmental sustainability in a coherent and overarching manner, ensuring that multilateral trade rules support the global transition towards a climate neutral and resilient economy.

The Commission aims at a broad multilateral initiative with several building blocks. Primarily, it could focus on facilitating trade in goods and services that mitigate climate change. The initiative could also encompass other building blocks such as development, transparency on domestic measures, and enhance the role of the WTO Committee on Trade and Environment.

Speaker
