Trade Markets affected: Clean technologies
Measure: The International Trade Administration (ITA) is seeking comments on clean technologies export competitiveness.
Why this matters:
- Stakeholder input will inform the Department of Commerce’s (DOC) effort to develop a “U.S. Clean Technologies Export Competitiveness Strategy”, which intends to identify key issues influencing the deployment of these goods and services, highlight potential opportunities and challenges, and identify possible actions for the DOC and federal government to take in order to foster U.S. export competitiveness in clean technologies sectors.
- Clean technologies is a broad term that can encompass a range of technologies used to address a variety of environmental issues. For the purpose of this request for public comment, ITA is focused on both established and emerging technologies, and their associated goods and services, that can contribute to a transition to net-zero emissions by significantly removing or reducing the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in a specific application compared to existing, carbon-intensive technology in the same application.
Public Comments: Comments must be submitted by 5 p.m. on October 1, 2021. Additional details are available in the Federal Register notice.
More information: A copy of the Federal Register notice – which includes details on how to submit comments – is available online here.
Potential action: If your company and/or clients are actively exporting clean technologies – or want to export but are experiencing challenges in doing so – then this is an important opportunity to have your views heard. The CNFL DEC Trade Policy Committee would appreciate you sharing with us your or your client’s interest in submitting comments, and we are prepared to support you in preparing your submission if that would be helpful.
