Benefits for the Environment in the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement

Strongest, Most Enforceable Environmental Obligations of Any Trade Agreement:

The Environment chapter of the USMCA brings all environmental provisions into the core of the agreement and makes them enforceable. The USMCA includes commitments to implement key multilateral environmental agreements to which the United States is a party, such as the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora and the Montreal Protocol on Ozone Depleting Substances. The USMCA also addresses key environmental challenges such as illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing and harmful fisheries subsidies. USMCA commits the United States, Canada and Mexico to take actions to combat and cooperate to prevent trafficking in timber and fish and other wildlife. For the first time in a U.S. trade agreement, the USMCA also addresses other pressing environmental issues such as air quality and marine litter.
