Carbon dioxide emissions embodied in international tradeAbstract

OECD Indicators on Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions embodied in international trade (TECO2) are derived by combining the 2018 editions of OECD Inter-Country Input-Output (ICIO) Database and of International Energy Agency (IEA) statistics on CO2 emissions from fuel combustion. In this release of TECO2, emissions from fuels used for international aviation and maritime transport (i.e. aviation and marine bunkers) are also considered.

Production-based CO2 emissions are estimated by allocating the CO2 emissions to the 36 target industries in OECD ICIO and, to household final consumption of fuels, by both residents and non-residents.

Demand-based CO2 emissions are calculated by multiplying the intensities of the production-based emissions (c) with the global Leontief inverse (I-A)(-1) and global final demand matrix (Y) from OECD ICIO, taking the column sums of the resulting matrix and adding residential and private road emissions (FNLC), i.e. direct emissions from final demand: colsum [ diag(c) (I-A)(-1) Y ] + FNLC.
