Environmental Goods Agreement

Overview

The Environmental Goods Agreement (EGA) is a trade agreement being negotiated by 17 members of the World Trade Organization (WTO), focusing on reducing tariffs on products that benefit the environment. These products include solar panels, wind turbines, and energy efficiency, as well as air pollution, waste and water management technologies. Once concluded, the EGA will also play a role in helping to implement the Paris Agreement on climate change and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
