Environmentally and socially-extended input-output analysis (EEIOA) has seen remarkable developments in recent years with an increasing number of publications and policy-relevant applications. Studies examining the impacts of international trade or new technologies, environmental footprint assessments, hybrid life-cycle assessments, compilation and testing of multi-region input-output (MRIO) databases or large-scale scenario analyses are just a few prominent examples. This progress was enabled by the development of novel input-output methods, new databases, innovative modifications and applications as well as new electronic resources, including online platforms for the exchange of knowledge, data or code.
This special thematic series published in the Journal of Economic Structures aims to summarize novel advances and best practices in the field of EEIOA.
