The climate-energy-trade nexus in EU external relations

Rafael Leal-Arcas, Eduardo Alvarez Armas

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


There is a lot of talk about the fact that, as a result of trade, we have increased social inequality nationally and internationally and that the level of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions has been going up over time, also a result of international trade,2 and what can be done about it.3 Trade is in many senses considered to be the nemesis of environmental protection. In this chapter, however, we argue that, while all of that may be true, trade can contribute to climate change mitigation.
