ABSTRACT
The relationship between economic growth and carbon emissions is a hot issue of the sustainable development. We selected data of decoupling indicators from 1985 to 2010 of Henan Province to analysis the relationship between economic growth and carbon emissions. The results showed that the relationship between economic growth and carbon emission was weak decoupling for a long time, which indicated that economic rapid growth depended on increasing carbon emissions in Henan Province. This study suggested that Henan province should reduce the proportion of high energy-consuming industries, such as steel making, cement production, mining, etc, coordinate the relationship of economic growth and carbon emissions, and advocate low-carbon economy.
