Abstract

Concerning trade and the environment, some argue that countries may lower environmental standards to give their domestic firms a competitive edge in world trade. Others focus on switching Cold War–driven technology to address such problems as disease, hunger, and peace. Environmental technologies are important in developing a sustainable export trade strategy while ensuring firms' competitiveness in world markets. This article examines the legal, regulatory, and policy initiatives supporting the U.S. environmental goods and services industry, and concludes that firms' internal adjustments, government support of R&D, and reduction in regulatory burden are needed to enhance the EGS industry competitiveness.
