Abstract：Effects of four driving factors on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in China from 1992 to 2007 were studied by employing a weighted average decomposition method of structural decomposition analysis. The results showed that growth in final demand volume was the top determinant for the increase of emissions, followed by changes in input-output structure. Decrease in emission intensity was the major emission offset determinant. Changes in final demand structure contribute little to emission reduction. In terms of emissions from industry, the main sources of the embodied GHG emission increase were construction industry and machinery, electric and electronic manufacture industry. In terms of emission trend, the increase in GHG emission from 2002 to 2007 was much higher than that in other periods. Export and fixed capital formation, which increased dramatically from 2002 to 2007, were the main drivers.
