Webinar – World Standards Day (WSD) 2022 Program on Role of Sustainability Standards in International Trade on Oct 14, 2022 – 4 30 pm – 6 00 pm
Sustainable Trade Development and Voluntary Sustainable Standards
Sustainable Development defines international trade as “an engine for inclusive economic growth and poverty reduction, that contributes to the promotion of sustainable development”.
The exponential increase in global trade has enabled many developing countries to pursue economic development through export and export diversification. On the other hand, the nature of trade has changed and that products are now made by bringing parts together from different parts of the world.
Although the expansion of international trade, in the last decade, has brought economic and societal benefits across the globe, it resulted in failing to address the adverse social and environmental and even economic impacts.
Hence, in order for trade to become a ‘sustainable engine’, one approach that seems to be increasingly used is to internalize social, economic and environmental concerns in international trade.
Sustainability Standards play a central role in global trade, and greatly contribute to the improvement of environmental and social compliance in supply chains. They represent guidelines used by producers, manufacturers, traders, retailers, and service providers to develop good environmental, social, ethical, and food safety practices.
Sustainability standards can unlock new markets for developing countries.
Go Green, Go Sustainable
More and more countries are pursuing green, social and/or sustainable public procurement, therefore standards can play an important role in identifying which products are sustainable.
Adhering to sustainable trade standards can enhance opportunities for market access to retail, corporate and government consumers who are concerned about the sustainability of the products they purchase and the resources they consume in production, use and disposal.
