ABSTRACT

This research suggests a method of developing input-output table based on the amount of greenhouse gas emission of each industry. In order to do this, first it calculates the amount of energy used in each industries. Then, it develops an environmental input-output table and estimates the direct and indirect coefficient of green-gas emission of each industries. Results shows that the highest ratio of greenhouse-gas emission among the tourism industry is air transportation(2.0% of all industries). It is followed by automobile (1.6%), accommodation(1.1%,) food service (0.2%), and other transportation (0.2%). Results also indicates that the highest coefficients of greenhouse gas emission in the tourism industry is accommodation(0.904), which is followed by air transportation(0.901), automobile (0.483), other transportation(0.147), and food service (0.017). Particularly, the direct coefficients of the accommo- dation and air transportation are the fourth and fifth out of the twenty industries respectively.
