Monthly Chapter Meeting: September 18th @8:45am
September 11, 2021 @10:00am (PST), Monthly CCL Meeting with Guest Speaker Aaron Cosbey, with the International Institute for Sustainable Development
Border carbon adjustments, a mechanism to shield businesses in nations with robust climate ambition, have been a hot topic recently. The European Union has announced it will impose such taxes starting in 2023, and Senate Democrats in the U.S. have included it in the budget reconciliation resolution.
To learn more, we turn to Aaron Coseby with the International Institute for Sustainable Development. Aaron is an economist with 30 years of experience in the areas of trade, investment and sustainable development. He has served on the Deputy Minister for International Trade’s Academic Advisory Council on Canadian Trade Policy and recently wrote a report on the need for Canada to adopt a border carbon adjustment.
