Impact of the Carbon Labelling System on China’s International Trade and Countermeasures

Yupei Chen


Increasingly serious climate change and environmental problems threaten the survival and development of mankind, carbon labeling as a new marketing model has attracted the attention of countries. Although the carbon labeling system can promote the upgrading and transformation of Chinese enterprises to a certain extent, the implementation of this system is also prone to create de facto invisible trade barriers, which will have different degrees of negative impact on the trade exports of Chinese products. Therefore, China should actively take a series of measures to ensure the sustainable and healthy development of foreign trade.
