Abstract Final demand purchases initiate production processes that ultimately lead to environmental impacts. With the increase in international trade, many production processes occur outside of the country of final consumption. Whilst several studies have evaluated the pollution embodied in consumption and trade flows, few studies have investigated the structural linkages between domestic consumption and production in foreign regions. In this article we apply three complementary approaches to… 
The Importance of Imports for Household Environmental Impacts
A promising way to reduce environmental impacts of consumer expenditure is through the encouragement of more sustainable consumption patterns. Consumers cause environmental impacts both directly,
Mapping flows of embodied emissions in the global production system.
TLDR
The approach, seen as an extension of Structural Path Analysis (SPA), provides an exhaustive map of supply chain linkages between final production and consumption attributions of emissions and considers emissions embodied in the flows of intermediate products linking different economic sectors along supply chains.
The Application of Multi-regional Input-Output Analysis to Industrial Ecology
Consumption causes environmental impacts in two different ways. Direct environmental impacts result from consumption when consumers directly burn fossil fuels; for instance, from the petrol used for
Structural Path Analysis of Fossil Fuel Based CO2 Emissions: A Case Study for China
TLDR
An imports-adjusted single-region input-output (SRIO) model considering only domestic final use elements is constructed and it uses the SPA technique to highlight crucial routes along the production chain in both final use and sectoral perspectives, revealing that future mitigation in secondary and tertiary industries should be combined with upstream emission intensive industries in a systematic viewpoint to achieve sustainable development.
Environmental Pressures Embodied in the French Cereals Supply Chain
France is the second largest exporter of cereals in the world. Although the cereal supply chain is an asset to the country's economy and employment, it is at the same time responsible for a number of

INTERNATIONAL TRADE AND EMISSIONS : A LONGITUDINAL INPUT-OUTPUT ANALYSIS 1
Since the beginning of industrialization it is possible to observe an increase in the levels of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions caused by human activities (WTO, 2009). Given this issues, the problem
