The EU specifically is working on incentives to force developing nations into more environmental practices. Although the primarily goal is a reduction of carbon emissions, politically it has a lot of crossover.
Rich countries always try to discourage poorer countries from exploiting their own resources. That is, until it benefits the rich countries. Then exploitation is a consensual practice. This is especially palpable in issues surrounding the rainforest. “Don’t cut down the rainforest, man!” yell many Americans, who proceed to enjoy the beef, rubber, wood, and soy from plantations gouged out from the rainforest.
