There are little knowledge and agreement on the nature of interactions among the international trade, environmental quality and development process.  This paper deals with the assessment on the intensity of the relationship between the international trade and environmental pollution regarding the carbon (CO2) emissions of a developing country, Bangladesh. The paper deals with the exploration of the situation only and consequently draws attention on the environmental regulations without causing harm to international relation. The flow and essence of the paper have been drawn from the empirical analyses of the data of 32 years (1976 – 2008). Sector wise scenario has been explored to understand the situation more clearly.
