International trade and climate change have traditionally been considered two distinct issues for the global community to address. However, as the climate crisis gains more attention, policymakers are reaching deeper into their toolboxes to confront the challenge. CSIS research has focused on understanding the relationship between global trade rules and climate policy. In a recent report, the CSIS Scholl Chair in International Business explores that relationship, explains its significance for policymakers, and offers actionable recommendations to lay the foundation for a climate-driven trade agenda.  The Biden administration has prioritized climate change as a central pillar of its plan to rebuild the U.S. and global economy, and there are unique, new opportunities to push climate and trade issues to the forefront of policymaking decisions.

Please join us for a public event with keynote remarks from Congressman Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) and a subsequent panel with David Victor, Professor of International Relations at UC San Diego, and Warren Maruyama, Partner at Hogan Lovells. The conversation will be moderated by Bill Reinsch, CSIS Scholl Chair in International Business and Senior Adviser, and Sarah Ladislaw, Senior Vice President and Director of the CSIS Energy Security and Climate Change Program. We look forward to an engaging, informative event.
