The OECD is investigating the trends of environmental provisions in Regional Trade Agreements (RTAs) and their effects on the environment since 2005. Recent work focuses on how governments actually implement these environmental commitments and whether they have had an impact on environmental endpoints and on how to incorporate environmental objectives across these agreements for better policy coherence.
L'initiative conjointe de l'OCDE et de l'OMC pour la mesure du commerce extérieur en valeur ajoutée a pour but de remédier au comptage multiple qui est implicite dans les mesures classiques de flux commerciaux bruts, et de s'intéresser plutôt à la valeur ajoutée par les pays (au travers de la rémunération du travail, des taxes et des profits) dans la production des biens ou services exportés.
The OECD has a long history of influencing the development of environmental labels. Following the first report on environmental labelling in 1976, extensive reviews of existing and planned schemes were carried out in the 1980s and into the 1990s, contributing to promoting their use and effectiveness.
