Based on the characteristics of energy use and economic output of light industry and heavy industry, the carbon emission of main energy consumption in Guangzhou’s industry from 2003-2016 is analyzed by the Logarithmic Mean Divisia Index method (LMDI). The results show that the economic scale effect and industrial structure effect were the leading factors for the increase of carbon emission but both them were getting weaker. On the other hand, the energy intensity effect is the main factor in the carbon emission suppression of Guangzhou’s industry, which was also getting weaker. What’s more, the heavy industry plays the most important role both in carbon emission and emission suppression. Therefore, some suggestions on the future control of carbon emission in Guangzhou’s industrial development are put forward in the end.
