September Monthly Meeting And Actions W/ Aaron Cosbey, International Institute For Sustainable Development

Average Rating:

Each month, Citizens’ Climate Lobby supporters gather locally for a monthly meeting where we educate ourselves by listening to a guest speaker. Go to your local chapter's page to find out more about your chapter's plans for listening in.  September's Monthly Meeting will take place on Saturday, Sept.11th and feature a conversation with Aaron Cosbey, with the International Institute for Sustainable Development.

d56db84a79fbc3d49df2a889dea7f48e-huge-snBorder 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 Cosbey 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.
