Introduction

Sustainable development is at the heart of the WTO

Sustainable development and protection and preservation of the environment are enshrined in the WTO’s founding document, the Marrakesh Agreement Establishing the WTO. The Agreement recognizes that trade “should be conducted with a view to raising standards of living [and] ensuring full employment … while allowing for the optimal use of the world’s resources in accordance with the objective of sustainable development, seeking both to protect and preserve the environment and to enhance the means for doing so in a manner consistent with their respective needs and concerns at different levels of economic development.”
