RELEASE: Concluding a Global Arrangement on Sustainable Steel and Aluminum

Washington, D.C. — A new analysis from the Center for American Progress argues that a proposed trade deal with the European Union on aluminum and steel offers a historic opportunity to align the global economy with climate action and the interests of workers.

The Global Arrangement on Sustainable Steel and Aluminum (GASSA) would also offer a productive mechanism for countering abuses of the global trading system by nonmarket economies while strengthening transatlantic relations, the analysis says.

The piece recommends that if GASSA cannot move forward in a timely fashion, the United States should seek similar partnerships with other high-ambition steel- and aluminum-producing nations.
