Study on Estimates of Embodied Carbon of China: Based on Input-Output Analysis

Zhonglin Sheng, Yufei Xin, and Weida He

Abstract—In this paper, we use input-output analysis and commodity exporting data of China during 1999-2012 to conduct an empirical study and calculate carbon embodiments in China‚Äôs exporting goods. The results show that China has been exporting a large amount of carbon embodiments, and its increase of CO2 emissions has a close relationship with its export and import, among the annual CO2 emissions of China, about 12%-24% were caused by the demands of other countries.

Index Terms—Carbon emissions embodied, import, export, China.
