Reduction of GHG emissions

Our line of research focuses on the evaluation the environmental performance of firms and economies by analysing the fluctuations of CO2 emissions and their links with economic activity. The methodological framework is based on a dynamic factor analysis to elaborate indicators of the environmental performance. The index can be used to monitor the progress towards target behaviours across economies and firms. We also track the efforts made to decouple CO2 emissions from GDP. Based on these analyses, we develop a CO2 emissions-GDP linkage matrix to attain useful information on the firms and economies.
