The analysis is based on the multi-regional input-output model developed previously on behalf of DEFRA (Wiedmann et al. 2008), which explicitly accounts for the structure of UK imports and the differences in production technologies across three world regions (OECD Europe, OECD non-Europe, non OECD).

The analysis not only provides important information for supporting UK climate change policies, but might also provide additional insights for future refinements of the model.
