ABSTRACT

The phenomenon of climate change is deteriorating which increased heatwaves, typhoons and heavy snowfalls in recent years. Followed by the 25th United nations framework convention on climate change(COP25), the world countries have achieved a consensus on achieving carbon neutrality. City plays a crucial role in achieving carbon mitigation as well as economic development. Considering economic and environmental factors, we selected 63 cities in South Korea to analyze carbon emission situation by Elbow method and K-means clustering algorithm. The results reflected that cities in South Korea can be categorized into 6 clusters, which are technology-intensive cities, light-manufacturing intensive cities, central-innovation intensive cities, heavy-manufacturing intensive cities, service-intensive cities, rural and household-intensive cities. Specific suggestions are provided to improve city-level carbon mitigation development.
