The Benefits of Liberalising Trade

image of Environmental and Energy Products
This collection of studies is intended to help trade negotiators navigate through the international discussion over liberalising trade in environmental goods and services by exploring in greater depth three categories of environmental goods: environmentally preferable products, renewable-energy products and energy-efficient products. Its three chapters consider the scope and definition of each product category, examine tariff and non-tariff barriers to trade, and explain the environmental effects of liberalising such goods.  This book follows a previous volume, Trade that Benefits the Environment and Development: Opening Markets for Environmental Goods and Services, published in 2005,

Can Energy-Efficient Electrical Appliances Be Considered “Environmental Goods”?

Public policies in a large number of OECD and non-OECD countries seek to steer producers and consumers towards relatively more energy-efficient goods. This chapter considers electrical appliances for home and office, which are produced and consumed in large and increasing numbers in industrialised and, increasingly, in developing economies.
