SPOTLIGHT ON CARBON BORDER FEES: THE VIEW FROM BRUSSELS AND WASHINGTON
WIIT’s Environment & Energy Program Section invites you to attend the first of a series of events focusing on the critical issues in the energy and climate space that have meaningful ramifications for trade policy.
We invite you to attend a virtual session that will explain the role that carbon border adjustment mechanisms might play as part of ambitious emission reduction targets set by Brussels and Washington. We will unpack the domestic and international politics around formulating a fee on the carbon value of imported goods and discuss the corporate implications of the new tariff regimes.
