EU BioTrade


BIO-TRADE stands for Protecting Biodiversity through Regulating Trade and Business Relations. (2022-2025)

The focus is on EU trade and supply chains. The project aims to produce novel understanding of current and future European trade rules that impact, or target, the protection and enhancement of, biodiversity and human rights outside Europe.

The project involves a consortium of 4 institutions: RWI, the Finish Environment Institute, University of Copenhagen, and University of Bern.

The research consortium analyses root causes of biodiversity loss, degradation of healthy ecosystems, and the legal innovations that are needed for conserving, restoring, and sustainably using biodiversity to maintain the healthy ecosystems upon which we all depend.
