United Nations Environment Programme ; International Trade Center (ITC) ; International Center for Trade and Sustainable Development (ICTSD) (2012-06)

Liberalizing trade in environmental goods can create new markets and export opportunities, thus supporting export-led development strategies. In addition, trade liberalisation can provide access to green goods and technologies at lower cost and greater efficiency. Increased deployment of cheaper and better-quality environmental goods helps countries pursue their national environmental policy objectives and counter environmental degradation and climate change, facilitating the transition to a green economy.
