A pilot study on constructing a Scottish sectoral CO2 emissions account

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

To calculate polluting emissions, the Scottish economy was divided into 76 sectors and the pollution attributable to each sector was estimated. We used emission/output ratios for the UK, but then further adjusted estimated Scottish emissions, using the ratio of economic activity for each sector between Scotland and the UK.
