This study uses multi-regional input-output analysis combined with selected bottom-up analyses to estimate the greenhouse gas emissions embodied in New Zealand’s imports and exports. The analysis includes data for 113 countries and regions representing the entire world economy, with increased detail for New Zealand and Australia. Preliminary results indicate that emissions embodied in New Zealand’s imports are much lower than those in its exports. The study concludes in June 2010. For more information click here.
