The  control of total carbon emission is the final goal of carbon emission reduction. And industrial carbon emission is the elementary unit of total carbon emission. Based on existing studies. The author combines input-output analysis and factors distribution method and chooses more comprehensive technical progress indicators compared to previous studies, being able to cover utilization efficiencies of such various intermediate inputs as energy products and non-energy products. Through this analysis, the author obtains not only the influence of various factors on industrial carbon emission but also the influence of different industries on national carbon emission, providing a theoretical basis and data support for the total national carbon emission from the perspective of industrial emission reduction.
