Abstract

This article discusses whether the Treaty establishing the European Community (TEU) is actually more environmentally friendly than the WTO agreements and whether it can provide a role model for greening the WTO agreements. It analyses whether European Union (EU) member states have greater leeway in enacting environmental measures than WTO members have and how the WTO agreements could become reformed accordingly.
