Given the current global climate change concerns, environmental goods (EGs) exported from developing countries have been declining in recent years despite the growing economic importance of these nations. Researchers believe that the problem lies in the nature of technology and border-related constraints.


This research work considers a relatively modern approach known as the “stochastic frontier gravity-type model” to examine opportunities and challenges involving Bangladesh EGs exports.


It is evident that Bangladesh, despite its close links to the other East Asian economies, has not realized the true potential of EGs exported between 2001 and 2015.


This study highlights the removal of border-related constraints that will improve the country’s exports. The findings will make it possible to explain the constraints of the export of environmental goods.
