CO2 emissions embodied in trade

“CO2 Embodied in International

Trade with Implications for Global

Climate Policy”

Fri 2/08/08

Hello Climate-L Colleagues,

Environmental Science & Technology recently released a paper titled “CO2 Embodied in International Trade with Implications for Global Climate Policy”. The paper presents an investigation of the CO2 emissions that are required to produce the goods that are traded internationally and shows that in 2001, 21.5% of global emissions were embodied in trade. Industrialized countries are responsible for a substantial share of emissions that occur in developing countries, and that the net flow of embodied emissions is from developing to industrialized countries. The paper gives an overview of the CO2 embodied in trade for 87 countries. The implications for the negotiation of a post-Kyoto climate treaty are discussed.

A pre-print of the paper can be accessed from
