Environmental standards for UK agriculture in a new trade policy framework

The briefing addresses the need for a new approach to environmental standards in trade policy relating to agri-foods, primarily in relation to the UK which is now developing its own policy out-side the EU. Such standards can be expected to play a more prominent role in the coming decades as the food system adjusts to progressively more stretching sustainability requirements, as part of an economy-wide effort to deliver on climate, biodiversity, and other environmental commitments.  This briefing provides a detailed discussion about how environmental standards can be addressed in a new UK trade policy.
