Abstract: Transportation is one of the significant sources of global anthropogenic emissions, generating about 14% of global Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHG) with the largest contribution from ground transportation followed by air and water transport. However, international climate agreements such as the Kyoto Protocol or Paris Agreement focused mostly on the regulation of production emissions without considering transport emissions in policy regulations. In this paper I analyze the effects of global carbon pricing on international trade and modal choice in the transportation of goods between countries, and resulting changes in international transport emissions. For this purpose I modify the Energy-environmental version of the Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP-E) model to allow for substitution among different modes of transport.
