Based on city level, this paper estimated carbon emissions and carbon footprint of Nanjing city, analyzed urban carbon footprint intensity and carbon cycle pressure and discussed the influencing factors of carbon footprint through LMDI decomposition model. The total carbon emissions and footprint of Nanjing increased rapidly since 2000. Economic development, population and industrial structure are promoting factors of carbon footprint of Nanjing, while the industrial carbon footprint intensity was inhibitory factor. Policy implications and countermeasures are presented
