This lunchtime seminar analyses the relationship between the distribution of income and the carbon content of household consumption. Household carbon is estimated by linking expenditure data to productive sectors and their carbon intensity derived through input-output analysis. Assuming (conditional) homogeneity in preferences, the research finds that complete income redistribution might have raised household carbon in 2009 by about 2.5%.
