Abstract

This study examines the effects of urban household consumption on CO2 emissions in 2011. The required information was obtained from the input-output table (IOT) 2001 and the statistical data on the income and expenditure of urban households in 2011. CO2 emissions (direct, indirect, and total) induced by urban household consumption was estimated. Also, the proportion of income deciles of urban households in CO2 emissions was calculated. The results of the study indicated a higher proportion of higher-income households in the consumption of goods and services. On the other hand, CO2 emissions induced by urban household consumption increases in proportion to the increase in consumption expenditure. Therefore, higher-income deciles of urban households have a larger proportion of CO2 emissions. The results also showed the effectiveness of combining the consumption of different rural households on CO2 emissions induced by urban household consumption. The pollution coefficient of each unit of consumption expenditure of urban households, indicating CO2 emissions from each unit of consumption expenditure of income deciles of urban households, showed an incomplete inverse relationship between the coefficient of pollution of consumer goods and household income. This can be due to reasons like the fact that the consumer goods of the lower deciles are highly domestic, leading to relatively higher pollution of the consumer goods of the lower deciles of society
