Resum: We analyse the relationship between the Ecuadorian economy and environmental pollution from an input-output approach, thereby identifying the key sectors in CO2 emissions and establishing a typology of them for the year 2013. The methodology used determines the economic activities that have greater responsibility in the generation of emissions, due to their own production or their interrelation with other activities. In addition, this influence is broken down into two types of effects (own and pure), which allow for a better perspective of the influence that the key sectors exert on the rest of the activities. The results show that, in addition to activities traditionally considered as polluting (transport, electricity and oil derivatives), there are others, such as commerce, construction, telecommunications and government administrative services, which are also highly responsible for the generation of emissions in the entire productive system.
