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