Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA): Discover the benefits for cleantech companies.

 

CETA can play an important role in fostering a favourable business environment for increased trade in clean technology goods and services.

  • The EU is the world’s third-largest importer clean-tech products, with imports totaling $148 billion in 2016.
  • CETA eliminates EU tariffs on Canadian clean-tech products.
  • Canadian clean-tech service providers are on equal footing with their EU competitors and will receive better treatment than most of their non-EU competitors.
  • Canadian clean-tech companies also benefit from improved labour mobility provisions, expanded access to EU government procurement opportunities, and the eligibility to test products for European conformity in Canadian facilities.
