"The Costs of Green House Gas Emission Reductions in the European and Japanese Economies under Mixed Emission Trading Regimes."
by Hamasaki, Hiroshi and Truong Truong

Following the successful outcomes of the COP6 meeting in Bonn in July 2001, it is likely that the path to the adoption of the Kyoto Protocol is still well alive, despite the withdrawal of the US from the Protocol in March 2001. Among the remaining parties, the European Union and Japan are major players. In this paper, we look at the costs of achieving the Kyoto Protocol targets for the EU and Japanese economies, using the latest GTAP version 5 data base. We look at the costs for several cases. In the first (reference) case, we assume there is no emission trading either between nations, or between sectors within a nation. Then we progressively allow for emission trading between the EU and Japan, but subject the total amount of trading to a fixed percentage of the Kyoto’s targets. We explore the changes to the abatement costs when these fixed percentages are varied.

Keywords: CO2 emissions; Abatement costs, Kyoto Protocol, Emission trading, Computable general equilibrium model, Japan, European Union.
