The White House claims the “TPP’s Environment chapter [is] the most far-reaching ever achieved in a trade agreement.”

Friends of the Earth describes the TPP as a step backward from trade agreements negotiated by President George W. Bush writing: “The environment chapter, which actually only deals with a narrow range of conservation measures, is largely unenforceable and is substantially weaker than trade deal conservation provisions negotiated by President George W. Bush.”
