Project Summary

Enhancing trade in environmental and environmentally related services can bring economic benefits to the APEC region, while also preventing, protecting against and remedying environmental degradation. One way to support increased trade in these services is through the liberalisation that economies agree through FTA and RTA negotiations. Developing schedules of services commitments can pose technical challenges – particularly for services as complex as environmental and environmentally related services, some of which may have environmentally beneficial as well as potentially environmentally harmful applications (‘dual uses’).

This project will build on the successful endorsement of the APEC Reference List of Environmental and Environmentally Related Services by developing a model positive list schedule of commitments for these services, with accompanying explanatory notes. This is envisaged as a resource that economies will be able to utilise as and when they see fit and tailor to their own individual circumstances when negotiating FTAs/RTAs.
