Abstract

For the period between 1988 and 2009, we constructed the two sets of the world panel database for the pollution emission embedded in international trade. By applying the time-invariant common pollution intensity at industry level for international trade of over 150 countries, a change in pollution emission from the first database reflects scale and composition effects. This first database allows us to investigate whether the composition of international trade for a country changed toward pollution intensive industries during the last two decades. By utilizing a time-varying and country-varying pollution intensity variable for technique effect, the second database provides a full account of pollution emission embodied in global trade and show to what degree the pollution emission is attributed to scale, composition and technique effects.
