Delivering a Climate Trade Agenda: Industry Insights

The urgency of the climate crisis demands that greater attention be given to the role of trade in accelerating emissions reductions and mitigating the effects of climate change while pursuing sustainable growth. The World Economic Forum, in collaboration with Clifford Chance, interviewed representatives from more than 30 companies to better understand how trade can support climate action. Based on insights from these interviews, this report identifies several immediate opportunities for trade policy to support businesses in achieving emissions reductions, as well as areas in which further work is required to ensure trade and climate policy coherence. The report summarizes these findings and suggests paths forward from the perspectives of stakeholders.
