Abstract: This editorial is the introduction to a special issue of Economic Systems Research on the topic of carbon footprint and input-output analysis. It provides a brief historical context of the involvement of input-output analysis with applications in environmental research and makes the link to carbon footprint theory and practice. The six papers in this issue are briefly introduced. The aim of the special issue is to bring together the academic world of rigorous economic modelling and the practice of greenhouse gas accounting at various levels.
