UKTPO webinar: A net-zero emissions trade policy? Reflections on reconciling UK trade and climate ambitions

Time: Sep 9, 2020 09:30 AM in London

As well as being the first major economy to commit to a net-zero emissions by 2050 climate target, the UK also has ambitious trade policy goals of providing multilateral leadership and concluding major new trade agreements. In this event, we examine the UK policies required to achieve net-zero and how they can be integrated into UK trade strategy, and consider wider implications of net-zero targets for the international trade system.
