Publication Overview

TTIP and Climate Change: Low economic benefits, real climate risks

This brief describes how the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP)—a trade and investment agreement under negotiation between the European Union and United States—can increase emissions and restrict the ability of nations to adequately mitigate and adapt to climate change.

It also offers a set of recommendations that would make EU–U.S. trade policy more consistent with global climate change goals.
