ECIPE Webinar: Road to COP26 – Should Trade Policy be Leveraged to Enforce the Paris Climate Accord?

October 20 2021
Venue: ZOOM Webinar
Speakers: Constanza Negri Biasutti, Eleonora Catella, Rodrigo Lima, Stéphanie Noël
Time: 14:00

Join a panel discussion on whether and how policymakers should leverage trade policy to enforce the Paris Climate Accord

The EU’s Copernicus programme just observed the largest hole to the ozone layer to date, and time is running out to effectively implement mitigation solutions to fight the impeding climate crisis. Increasingly, voices across Europe are calling for the Commission to make full use of its enforcement arsenal to ensure compliance with COP21’s Nationally Determined Contributions.

The inclusion of the Paris Climate Accord in trade and investment agreements has become a sine qua non factor for Parliamentary ratification, yet is it the EU’s role to start policing climate strategies through trade policy? If so, what are the risks of the EU thwarting advances at a multilateral level? If not, have trade and sustainable development chapters become a compendium of ambitious language without teeth?
