Regulatory Frameworks for Renewables-based Trade and Investment program

International trade and investment have a crucial role to play in decarbonizing the Indo-Pacific. Rapid development and expansion of supply chains based on renewable energy is essential and will need to be supported by enlightened trade, investment and green industrial policy. Trade-related climate policies such as certification schemes, embedded emissions accounting systems and preferential liberalisation of environmental goods are key. Meanwhile some traditional trade and investment rules - especially investment treaties - will need to be reformed to ensure they are supportive of a rapid, efficient and fair energy transition.
