This paper presents estimates of the carbon emissions of FDI from capital formation funded by FDI and the production of foreign-controlled firms. The carbon intensity of capital formation financed by FDI has trended down, driven by reductions in the carbon intensity of electricity generation. Carbon emissions from the operations of foreign-controlled firms are greater than those from their capital formation. High emission intensities were accompanied by high export intensities in mining, transport, and manufacturing. Home country policies to incentivize firms to meet strict emissions standards in both their domestic and foreign operations could be important to reducing emissions globally.

water had the highest overall emissions and emission intensities among MNEs. A comparison between MNEs and DOEs showed that DOEs accounted for the largest share in total emissions and generally had higher carbon intensities, but there were cases in low carbon intensive countries where MNEs had higher carbon intensities. For MNEs, high emissions intensities were accompanied by high export intensities in mining; transport and storage; and manufacturing industries. Given the high carbon emission intensities of MNEs in high export intensity industries, home country
