Abstract

L’obiettivo del lavoro è sfruttare la teoria delle Environmental Kuznets Curves per testare la dinamica relativa all'intensità di emissioni di anidride carbonica (intesa come rapporto tra emissioni e valore aggiunto) ed alla produttività del lavoro (calcolata come valore aggiunto su ore lavorate). Utilizzando il modello economico-ambientale IPAT e la nuova banca dati settoriale Wiod, uno degli strumenti più completi di accounting ambientale a livello europeo, si testa la relazione tra intensita' emissiva settoriale e driver economici, commerciali, di politica. Sebbene la relazione ad U rovesciata teorizzata dalla letteratura sulle curve di Kuznets ambientali sembri non verificarsi, si denotano dinamiche interessanti riguardanti la produttività del lavoro, il grado di apertura commerciale e le politiche, in merito al loro impatto sull'intensità di emissioni di anidride carbonica, con evidenze differenti tra Europa del nord e del sud.
