Time for government policymakers to begin taking into account intermediate direct and indirect industrial carbon linkages
Hypothetical Extraction Method (HEM) is becoming increasingly famous for the estimation of intermediate industrial carbon connections. In 2019 alone, the method was used extensively to study industrial carbon links at different levels (see for example –). It has been argued that this method is far better suited to estimating industrial carbon links than conventional multiplier approaches. It is time for government policy makers to start taking into account intermediate direct and indirect industrial carbon linkages in order to effectively reduce industrial carbon emissions.
