Abstract


During the past two decades there has been a shift in the geography of Global Supply Chains (GSCs) from developed countries to China, and more recently from China to successor countries in South Asia and Africa. The shift in GSC geography influences greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions because of the gap in energy efficiency and low-carbon technology between developed countries and China, and between China and China’s successor countries. The paper simulates the impact on global GHG emissions of the change in GSC geography in China’s direction. In addition to the direct effect of shifting GSCs on global emissions, there are potentially even larger indirect effects on global emissions. These include trade and infrastructure-related effects on emissions, and improvements in living standards in the developing world that are attributable to the shift of GSCs. The policy implications are briefly discussed at the end of the paper.
