Report: Who Owns China's Carbon Emissions

Oct 19, 2007

The Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research has just published a new briefing. It suggests that 23% of China's carbon emissions are due to the manufacture of goods that are exported to industrialized countries. The briefing was co-authored by myself and Tao Wang at the Sussex Energy Group, University of Sussex. Our conclusion is that it reinforces the need for industrialized countries to act first, and to make good on their commitments to assist developing countries to mitigate and adapt. A summary is reproduced below. The briefing is available at:
