Abstract

This study aims at assessing the effect of carbon dioxide (CO2) per unit of worker (intensity) emissions growth on productivity growth on selected 5 countries of Association of Southeast Asian Nations, (ASEAN5), Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand, plus 3 East Asian Countries (China, Japan and South Korea). The results show that there was difference in the contribution of labour productivity, capital deepening and CO2 intensity emissions whether CO2 intensity emissions was included or not in the model. There were, however differences in the growth rates of total factor productivity (TFP) intensity growth. Moreover, a significant decline in the growth rates of TFP intensity growth was observed during the entire period of the study and sub periods, when CO2 intensity emissions variable was internalised in the model. The CO2 intensity emissions had impacted the productivity growth through the declining contribution of green TFP intensity growth in comparison with conventionally calculated.
