An EU Green Deal for Trade Policy and the Environment

An EU Green Deal for trade policy and the environment

The EU is the world's largest trading bloc. It provides the biggest export market for around 80 countries; and EU Member States account for 16% of world imports and exports. Consequently, the EU has a considerable impact on third countries through trade, including the way in which international trade is conducted and how environmental and wider sustainability related aspects are addressed. This policy paper explores what a truly green EU trade policy under the EU Green Deal should look like.

Our main focus

Europe’s climate leadership is the key for leveraging political traction with others and securing outcomes at the international climate negotiations. However, Europe has become more divided on climate and energy policy, which undermines its credibility as a global climate frontrunner. The EU should boost its climate diplomacy to strengthen alliances with a wider range of countries and communities. At the same time, it is crucial to build support within the EU and its Member States for a European energy transition. An energy transition based on renewable energy and energy efficiency can not only drastically reduce emissions and other environmental and social burdens; it also reduces energy import dependency and hence increases energy security, strengthens local economies, and creates jobs. The Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung European Union aims to contribute to the development of sustainable and ambitious European climate and energy policies by means of publications, capacity buildings, expert meetings, and lunch debates.
