Maritime transport in the French economy and its impact on air pollution: An input-output analysis

Abstract : This article studies the role of maritime transport in France on the domestic economy with respect to output and employment-inducing effects through an Input-Output approach. This is the first study ever made in this country for this industry, whereas the same approach has been applied in the past to many other countries (Korea, Ireland, China, Spain …) having a significant maritime industry, thus giving a basis for comparison. In addition, an original contribution to the literature is provided through the assessment of the environmental impact of shipping on air pollution through various greenhouse gas emissions (SO2, NOx, CO2, PM2.5, PM10). This assessment of direct and indirect gas emissions caused by water transport is particularly important at a time of more stringent regulations being implemented by the International Maritime Organization and the European Union (i.e. within and beyond the SECA –Sulphur Emission Control Areas-limits) to reduce the sulphur emissions of ships.
