Abstract

This paper integrates two lines of research: trade in global value chains and embodied

emissions into a unified conceptual framework. This allows both value-added and emissions

to be systematically traced at the country, sector, and bilateral levels through various

production network routes. By combining value-added and emissions accounting in a

consistent way, the potential environmental cost (emission with per unit of value-added

created) along Global Value Chains can be estimated. Based on this unified accounting

method, we trace CO2 emission in global production and trade network among 41 economies

in 35 sectors from 1995 to 2009 based on the World Input-Output Database (WIOD) database

and show how they help us to better understand the impact of cross-country production

sharing on the environment.
