"Economic rebalancing and carbon dioxide emissions in China"
by Feng, Shenghao, Stephen Howes and Philip Adams


Abstract
China needs to rebalance away from investment, exports and industry to consumption and services. Since the old growth model is energy- and emissions-intensive, shifting to a new growth model could have profound implications for China’s carbon dioxide emissions. This paper uses a general equilibrium model to study the potential impact of successful economic rebalancing in China on the country’s CO2 emissions. The results show that economic rebalancing may, by 2030, contribute to 14 per cent reduction in the emissions intensity of GDP. Although these results can only be regarded as indicative, they show the importance of economic rebalancing to China’s climate change response.
