Post-Kyoto greenhouse gas inventories: production versus consumption

  author={Glen P. Peters and Edgar G. Hertwich},
  journal={Climatic Change},
For the long-term stabilization of greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations it is important that post-Kyoto policy has broad participation to ensure environmental integrity. Many post-Kyoto frameworks have been debated, but surprisingly approaches that focus on consumption have received little attention in the climate change literature despite broader interest in other areas. In this article we extend the argument for constructing GHG inventories using a country’s consumption rather than production… 
Analysis of China's Production- and Consumption-Based CO2 Emission Inventories
Abstract: China, as the biggest GHG emitter and the largest developing country, has been urged by international society to take responsibilities for reducing GHG, especially in the post-Kyoto
Trade, transport, and sinks extend the carbon dioxide responsibility of countries: An editorial essay
Globalization and the dynamics of ecosystem sinks need be considered in post-Kyoto climate negotiations as they increasingly affect the carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere. Currently, the
The equitable allocation of greenhouse gases
National Emissions Inventories (NEI) use Production-Based Accounting (PBA), which include only emissions generated within a nation's territory. Thus, there are presently no considerations of indirect
Preventing Carbon Leakage with Consumption-Based Emission Policies?
Steep and rapid reductions in greenhouse gas emissions are required from the industrialized countries. An important policy concern is that these emission reductions could lead to increases in
Integrating embodied emissions into climate change mitigation policy
International greenhouse gas emissions are typically monitored and regulated from a production perspective. This accounts for emissions produced directly by industries within a country’s territory.
China's carbon emissions and international trade: implications for post-2012 policy
Growing international trade has been one of the most important drivers for China's recent economic growth. This growth has fed rapid increases in energy demand and carbon emissions since 2000. China
Consumption-vs. Production-based Emission Policies
13 Emission leakage could potentially undermine the effectiveness of unilateral 14 climate policies. Significant emission transfers from developing to developed 15 countries in the form of emissions
Consumption‐based carbon accounting: does it have a future?
Internationally, allocation of responsibility for reducing greenhouse gas emissions is currently based on the production‐based (PB) accounting method, which measures emissions generated in the place


Climate change policy, market structure, and carbon leakage
Carbon Dioxide Emissions Embodied in International Trade of Goods
Efforts such as the Kyoto Protocol to reduce emissions that may be linked to climate change focus on six greenhouse gases (GHG). Carbon dioxide is by far the largest of these by volume, representing
Climatic Implications of the Kyoto Protocol: The Contribution of International Spillover
We explore the long-run impact of the Kyoto Protocol commitments to limit greenhouse gas emissions under various assumptions about the international spillover arising from actions led by the

Kyoto and the Future of International Climate Change Responses: From Here to Where?
This article gives a brief overview of the Kyoto Protocol, its core features of long-term relevance, the outlook to 2012, and the options for moving forward with a new round of negotiations on
Worldwide CO2-Emissions Reached New Record High
Worldwide climate protection suffered another serious set-back last year. According to preliminary estimates, energy-induced emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) - the most important greenhouse gas by
