Any trade agreement decided between the UK and the EU, and between the UK and other countries, will have implications for the environment.
The EU is keen to ensure that the UK maintains EU standards and does not become ‘the dirty man of Europe’ again. Deals with other countries such as the US, however, raise concerns of lowering environmental standards.
Any future agreement will also have implications for associated sectors, such as agriculture and food, which are dependent upon access to migrant workers, have supply chains that operate across borders and whose profitability currently relies upon EU exports and imports.
