The spatial–temporal variations of embodied carbon emissions in international trade at global scope are still unclear. This paper studies the variations of outflows and inflows of embodied carbon emissions at a disaggregated 35 sector level of 41 countries and regions, and an integrated world input–output model is employed. It also examines what would happen if there were no international trade flows in China, USA and Finland, the representatives of three different levels of the global balance of embodied carbon. We find the following: (1) Embodied carbon in global trade increases at about 3 % per year since 1995 World Trade Organization was founded, and East As...
