Access to affordable, sustainable energy and the issue of climate change are set to become key concerns for business. This chapter describes how improved trade governance can help businesses to massively ramp up the development of sustainable energy. The chapter shows that there is considerable momentum for different trade-related initiatives and in particular for an Environmental Goods Agreement, the major part of which would cover sustainable energy technologies. It explores in more detail why business should follow the developments in this field closely and discusses some promising ways forward.
