The world of global trade is changing at pace and while this brings a wealth of opportunities, there are also the challenges of meeting the evolving regulatory and customer requirements. In this webinar, we will look at a couple of key themes, highlighted during Santander's recent Industry Leaders Forum with leaders from across the Manufacturing industry, which will have a potential impact on businesses operating in the industry across the global marketplace.

During this webinar we will be looking in more detail at two new regulatory changes, highlighting how these could impact your business and what you should consider to help to prepare your business:

  • We will look at the EU’s new Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) legislation that will require companies importing certain goods into the EU to pay higher tariffs for high carbon products. This legislation has been implemented to ensure that imported polluting products, including those manufactured in more polluting environments, don't disadvantage EU manufacturers, as well as help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This has potentially significant implications for those imports and exports to the EU.
  • We will also explore in more detail the new US Inflation Reduction Act (USIRA), which is the most significant climate legislation in US history. It offers funding and incentives to accelerate the transition to net zero, while also encouraging US innovation, productivity, and economic competitiveness. However, this could have a considerable impact on non US companies.
