Sustainable complexity: Managing export regulations in the European Green Deal

  • Year: 2021
  • Author(s): Christopher Woood

This policy brief is an initial assessment of the European Green Deal, examining what is currently known about the risks it creates for South African exporters. It provides a summary of what regulatory changes are expected in the EGD, what risks these changes pose for South African firms, and what can be done to begin preparing for these changes.

The brief was funded by the Department of Trade, Industry and Competition. It draws on a report by TIPS, Tralac and Trade Advisory on The European Green Deal: Context, challenges and opportunities for South African SMEs operating in the green economy, funded by the European Union and the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, and Nuclear Safety (BMU).
