dc.description.abstract The mask of “green growth” strategies can target or promote “green” production, consumption or investment. Trade policy commentators have questioned whether some state measures (often subsidy-like measures) are a new way to introduce discrimination against trading partners. This policy brief reports the results and implications from the author’s work in progress “Do green state measures make import patterns climate-friendly?” Transparent presentation of “green” policies and detailed follow-up documentation of proceedings can make unilateral climate change mitigation and adaptation initiatives more credible while putting peer pressure on other countries. en
