Negotiations on the liberalization of environmental goods (EGs) and services within the WTO
Doha Round (mandated in November 2001) are facing specific challenges. Conflicting interests
and differing perceptions of the benefits of increased trade in EGs were reflected in different
approaches proposed for determining EGs. Using import data of 34 OECD member countries and
from a sample of 167 countries, from 1995 to 2012, we discuss the trade effect of reducing
barriers on EGs. We analyze the lists of EGs proposed by the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation
(APEC) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) using a
Translog gravity model. We found that removing tariff barriers for EGs will have a modest impact
because for the biggest importers and exporters, elasticities of trade costs are very low while for
most trading relationships they are very high, making it difficult for exporters to maintain their
markets. Overall, our results suggest that, because of their substantial effect on international
trade, future negotiations on EGs should also address the issues of standards and nontariff barriers
(NTBs).
