Abstract

This study investigates the relationship between total sectoral greenhouse gas emissions and economic growth in Turkey. The study examines the relationship between sectoral total greenhouse gas emissions of energy, industrial processes and product use, agriculture and waste production between 1990-2020 with Turkey’s economic growth. The ARDL model is used to observe the relationship between the greenhouse gas emissions of each sector and economic growth in the long and short term. The Granger causality test evaluates the causal factors affecting economic growth. The study shows a dependence between economic growth and greenhouse gas emissions caused by the agricultural sector in the long term. In contrast, the greenhouse gas emissions caused by the waste sector show a dependence in the short term and in the causality test. Policies addressing the agricultural and the waste sector should be prioritized to ensure that economic growth does not depend on greenhouse gas emissions. There are many studies in the literature on the dependence of economic growth on greenhouse gas emissions in Turkey. This study uses the econometric analysis method to examine the sectoral structure of dependency and will contribute to the literature regarding sectoral determination.
