Getting Ahead of the Curve: Border Carbon Adjustment Concepts (Hybrid Meeting)
Thursday, March 2, 2023
On-site Registration Opens/Networking Breakfast | 8:30 – 9:00am ET
Meeting Begins | 9:00 – 11:00am ET
On March 2 from 9:00 – 11:00am ET, the Climate Leadership Council’s Center for Climate and Trade will host its second in-depth discussion on design principles for border carbon adjustment (BCA) policies.
Accelerating convergence of climate and trade policies over the last two years is opening the door to different kinds of climate diplomacy and policy. With these developments come enormous opportunities to enhance international cooperation on lowering global emissions. At the same time, this raises questions about the potential for disruptions to commerce and supply chains, compliance issues and escalating trade tensions depending on what policies are adopted. In part two of this in-depth discussion series, the Climate Leadership Council’s Center for Climate and Trade will cover topics involving the World Trade Organization (WTO), G7, and United Nations Framework Convention on Climate (UNFCCC), such as:
- Common trade concerns with BCA policies;
- How BCA design choices impact compliance with international trade norms and commitments; and
- How BCAs fit within existing international climate initiatives.
This meeting will take place in a hybrid format, with both in-person and virtual participation options. Stay tuned for the agenda and additional meeting details.
The meeting will be held at the Capitol View Conference Center, located at 101 Constitution Ave NW, Suite 700 in Washington, DC.
For those attending in-person, breakfast will be available at 8:30am.
In-person space is limited, so register early to secure your spot.
