Abstract:

This study is an attempt to investigate the impact of financial development, energy consumption, trade and economic growth on CO2 emissions in Pakistan over the period of 1980 to 2015. We have used augmented dickey fuller (ADF) unit root test and auto regressive distributed lag (ARDL) bounds testing co-integration approach. The results of ARDL bound F-stat indicate that there is a long run relationship between CO2 emissions, capital, trade, energy consumption, financial development and economic growth. The long run empirical findings show that energy consumption, financial development, economic growth and trade are the increasing factors of carbon dioxide emissions.
