Abstract

Despite increased public interest, policy makers have been slow to enact targets based on limiting emissions under full consumption accounting measures (such as carbon footprints). We argue that this may be due to the fact that policy makers in one jurisdiction do not have control over production technologies used in other jurisdictions. We use a regional input – output framework and data derived on carbon dioxide emissions by industry (and households) to examine regional accountability for emissions generation. In so doing, we consider two accounting methods which permit greater accountability of regional private and public (household and government) final consumption as the main driver of regional emissions generation, while retaining focus on the local production technology and consumption decisions which fall under the jurisdiction of regional policy makers. We propose that these methods permit an attribution of emissions generation that is likely to be of more use than a full global footprint analysis to regional policy makers.
