trade deals deployed to encourage Brazil to protect rainforest
Brazil is under increasing pressure to do something about the many wildfires in the Amazon. France and Ireland want to stop a trade deal if President Bolsonaro doesn't change his environmental policy. Finland wants to stop imports of Brazilian beef into Europe.
Using trade agreements to encourage countries to take action is a new phenomenon. In this way, governments can influence the sustainability of the products for sale domestically, even if they are produced elsewhere.
