In Carbon Management
For effective and practical implementation of border carbon adjustment, it is crucial to determine the carbon content of imports/exports. In this paper we discussed two criteria. One is direct carbon emissions, which accounts for direct emissions generated from production. The other is embodied emissions which accounts for the total emissions...

Competitiveness and carbon leakage are two central concerns in the international negotiations of a future climate policy. With more attentions given to border adjustment measures to address these concerns, it is rational to consider consumption-based national inventory to account for emissions embodied in international trade. In this work, we...

In Climate Change - Research and Technology for Adaptation and Mitigation
There have been a lot of debates around the concerns of international competitiveness and carbon leakage which are related to the asymmetric implementation of climate policies in the Annex I and non-Annex I countries as a result of the Kyoto Protocol. Border adjustment measures (BAM), in particular border tax adjustment (BTA), are proposed to...

Carbon leakage and international competitiveness are two policy concerns related to the asymmetric domestic climate policies as a result of the implementation of the Kyoto Protocol. Among other policy alternatives, the use of offsetting measures at the border to level the playing field is getting popular in policy debates. Climate change related...
Policy Report
This report is based on IGES initiated research to assess embodied emissions in international trade, with particular focus on Asian countries. Part I, conducted by the Economic Analysis Team of IGES, focuses on the assessment of emissions embodied in multilateral trade in Asian countries and different responsibility principles for the generation of...
Policy Report
Author:
The entry into force of the Kyoto Protocol to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Control (UNFCCC) divides parties into two groups by their obligations to mitigate domestic emissions. This division creates differences in the strictness of domestic climate policy, which are in favour of the conditions for creating the “heavens” of...

Author:
Current national GHG accounting which does not consider emissions embodied in trade may cause issues such as carbon leakage from Annex I to non-Annex I countries through trade of carbon-intensive goods. Among other measures to address this issue, this paper presents an alternative approach by trade adjustment to national CO2 accounting with...
