Trade and Environment Briefings: Trade in Environmental Goods - Policy Brief 6
United Nations Environment Programme, International Trade Center (ITC), International Center for Trade and Sustainable Development (ICTSD)

Liberalizing trade in environmental goods can create new markets and export opportunities, thus supporting export-led development strategies. In addition, trade liberalisation can provide access to green goods and technologies at lower cost and greater efficiency. Increased deployment of cheaper and better-quality environmental goods helps countries pursue their national environmental policy objectives and counter environmental degradation and climate change, facilitating the transition to a green economy.

United Nations Environment Programme

Unsustainable human activities, from farming and mining to industry and infrastructure, are undermining the productivity of vast areas of farmland, forests and other ecosystems across all continents. This degradation threatens food security, water supplies and the biodiversity upon which human development depends. It drives and is exacerbated by climate change. And it will put the Sustainable Development Goals out of reach unless it is urgently addressed.
