Sakai, M and Barrett, J (2015) Reducing the Carbon Footprint and its Implications for Global Employment: The Labour Productivity of Carbon. In: Murray, J, McBain, D and Wiedmann, T, (eds.) The Sustainability Practitioner’s Guide to Social Analysis and Assessment. On Sustainability . Common Ground Publishing LLC , 130 - 140. ISBN 9781612298122
The chapter discusses the implications that a reduction in the world’s carbon footprint will have for global employment. The results show some of the unforeseen consequences for the developing world if the developed world decides to reduce its carbon footprint by reducing its imports. The chapter introduces us to the labour productivity of carbon, which represents the amount of labour associated with every kilogram of CO2 released during production of goods and services.
