7th round of talks for an environmental goods agreement

The seventh round of negotiations for an environmental goods agreement is taking place in Geneva, from 15 to 22 June 2015. The aim is to agree on a list of environmental products on which customs duties will be lifted in order to encourage trade in such goods. The negotiators are making progress in some areas, e.g. in the renewable energy sector, while further work is required in other areas.
