Summary
On 8 November 2016, a World Trade Organization (WTO) panel was established to examine the third in a series of cases regarding China's export duties, which China asserted were intended to promote sustainable development.

This article seeks to answer the question of whether the WTO should rule in favour of China's export duties by drawing attention to an issue unaddressed in the two previous cases, namely the potential of China's export duties to curb carbon leakage
