|Abstract:||A decomposition analysis is used to investigate the main factors influencing the CO2, the CH4 and the N2O emissions of Italian transport activities for the period 1995-2003. The decomposition method developed by Sun (Sun. J.W., 1998. Accounting for energy use in China, 1980–94. Energy 23, 835–849) has been used to investigate the emission intensity, the energy intensity, the structural changes and the economy activity growth effects for the maritime and the aviation transport sectors. Results indicate that energy intensity and economic growth have been the main determinants of emissions increase.|
