Abstract

Environmental pollution is generated through the production process or through the consumption process of goods and services. Since production is induced mainly by consumption there is a need to concentrate on the impacts of consumption activities in environmental pollution rather than the production activities. This paper focuses on the impacts of consumption pattern changes on environmental pollution in Korea as few studies have addressed this issue. This paper employed a newly-developed estimation procedure and a newlycompiled environmental data base in order to accomplish this objective. On the basis of such establishments, both an air and a water pollution material discharge matrix were compiled for 105 sectors. (The rest omitted)
