The European Union and policymakers in Canada, Japan, the U.K., and the U.S. have all signaled interest in pricing imported emissions. Early opposition to this policy idea has described border adjustments as too complex to design, too burdensome on companies and on government, and too high risk for global trade. Yet all these challenges are surmountable with a properly designed BCA.
Join the Climate Leadership Council for a briefing on the building blocks we already have that make border adjustments entirely feasible and even inevitable. Catrina Rorke, the Council’s Vice President for Policy, outlines a new report, “Don’t Believe the Hype: A BCA Is Doable (and We’re Doing Most of It Already).” She then moderates a panel discussion with climate and trade experts.
