CO2 emissions from a consumption point of view per capita

The CO2 emissions from a consumption point of view include the CO2 emissions in Germany less those emissions that are attributable to the production of export goods and plus emissions generated abroad in the production of German imports. The results are shown in tonnes per capita.

Share of imports in economy-wide material input

The share of imports in economy-wide material input is the imports of goods in tonnes in relation to domestic raw material extraction plus imports of goods - also measured in tonnes.

CO2 emissions abroad from the production of German import goods

The index contains the CO2 emissions that are caused by the production of German import goods abroad. Both the emissions incurred abroad in the production of the imported intermediate goods and the emissions caused in the production of goods for final use (domestic consumption and exports) are included.

The results are obtained from calculations based on an environmentally-extended input-output analysis. For comparison purposes, Kyoto reporting CO2 emissions for Germany are shown.

CO2 emissions from the production of export goods

The index includes the direct and indirect emissions caused by the production of export goods. The emissions from domestic production and those incurred abroad in the production of the imported intermediate goods required in the production of export goods are recorded.

The results are obtained from calculations based on an environmentally-extended input-output analysis. For comparison purposes, Kyoto reporting emissions for Germany are shown.

From the data on emissions in Germany (according to the Kyoto Protocol) and on domestic emissions caused by exports, a share of exports is determined.

Imports in raw material equivalents

Following a complex calculation procedure imports are converted into raw materials used for their production. For the calculations a combination of life-cycle analysis and input-output analysis is used.

CO2 emissions abroad connected with the transport of products imported to or exported from Germany

The indicator includes direct CO2 emissions caused by the transport of imported products from the country of origin to the German border as well as CO2 emissions caused by the transport of export products from the German border to the country of destination. For comparison, the CO2 emissions are shown in connection with domestic goods transport.
