Green Trade – Aligning Policy and Climate Goals
The urgency of climate change is propelling decisionmakers at every level of the global economy to reevaluate the carbon footprint of production and consumption networks. With trade policy, they are finding opportunities to build environmentally sustainable and resilient supply chains, to offer market-based incentives for investment into renewable energy technologies as an offset to the emissions of international trade, and to ultimately make the green economy a profitable and attractive pursuit. In a world driven by economic growth, trade policy is perhaps the most potent tool for inducing the socio-economic shifts necessary to limit climate change.

The American Security Project hosts a conversation with The Rt Hon. the Lord Barker of Battle, Ambassador Daniel Sepulveda, and Ambassador Robert Holleyman to discuss aligning climate change goals with trade policy.

About the speakers:

The Rt Hon. the Lord Barker of Battle has served in senior roles in both business and political services. He was appointed Independent Chairman of the En+ Board of Directors in October 2017, immediately prior to the company’s successful London IPO. He was promoted to Executive Chairman in February 2019.   Lord Barker was previously a member of the British House of Commons from 2001 to 2015.

Ambassador Danny Sepulveda served in the Senate as a senior advisor to Senators Boxer, Obama, and Kerry. He served in the Obama Administration at USTR and later as a Senate confirmed Ambassador in the Economic Bureau of the State Department. His policy areas include digital privacy, trade, telecommunications, technology, and immigration and labor.

Ambassador Robert Holleyman is the president and CEO of Crowell & Moring International and a partner in Crowell & Moring’s International Trade, and Privacy and Security groups.
