Abstract: Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDC) have renewed attention to the importance of exploring temperature rise levels lower than 2 ℃, in particular a long-term limit of 1.5 ℃, compared to the preindustrial level. Nonetheless, achieving the 2 ℃ target under the current INDCs depends on dynamic socioeconomic development pathways. Therefore, this study conducts an integrated assessment of INDCs by taking into account different Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (SSPs). To that end, the CEEP-BIT research community develops the China’s Climate Change Integrated Assessment Model (C3 IAM) to assess the climate change under SSPs in the context of with and without INDCs. Three SSPs, including ‘‘a green growth strategy’’ (SSP1), ‘‘a more middle-of-the-road development pattern’’ (SSP2) and ‘‘further fragmentation between regions’’ (SSP3) form the focus of this study. Results show that the carbon prices under INDCs are very low and thus have no evident positive impacts on emission reduction in the three SSPs. There are long-term difficulties to keep warming well below 2 ℃ and pursue efforts toward 1.5 ℃ target under the current INDCs. A drastic reduction in greenhouse gas emissions is needed in order to mitigate potentially catastrophic climate change impacts.

Abstract: Input-output analysis (IOA) is widely used to estimate the environmental impacts of economic activities, while data envelopment analysis (DEA) is a widely utilized approach for evaluating environmental efficiency. IOA gives the observed material flow of all industrial sectors and DEA provides the optimal solution of a specific sector. In this study, IOA and DEA are integrated in an optimization model to evaluate environmental efficiency related to all sectors and find optimal production of each sector. Moreover, an environmentally extended input-output table is constructed by introducing three virtual sectors, which reflect the abatement inputs and environmental benefits of reducing air pollutants. As a consequence, environmental value of emission and abatement can be qualified and involved into material flow with other industrial sectors in the input-output table. The optimization model is applied to evaluate the trade-off between environmental benefits and economic costs under different environmental taxation policies in China.

Abstract: China has entered a new phase of economic development—a new normal—in which large-scale, rapid and multidimensional changes in economic structure are happening. We constructed the time-series of CO2 emission inventories for China and its provinces. Environmentally extended input-output analysis and structural decomposition analysis were applied to investigate the driving forces behind changes in emissions. The pattern of China’s carbon emissions has changed. First, China’s carbon emissions have stabilized since 2013. Second, the strongest factors that offset CO2 emissions have shifted from efficiency gains to structural upgrading. Third, emission flow patterns have changed in both domestic and foreign trade since the global financial crisis. Some economically less developed regions, such as Southwest China, have shifted from being a net emission exporter to being a net emission importer. In terms of foreign trade, emissions embodied in China’s exports declined from 2007 to 2012 mainly due to changes in production structure and efficiency gains, while developing countries became the major destination of China’s export emissions.
