Does industrial upgrading promote eco-efficiency? ─A panel space estimation based on Chinese evidence

Energy Policy, 2021, vol. 154, issue C
Industrial upgrading plays a significant role in promoting eco-efficiency, but existing studies ignore this aspect. Using improved and comprehensive measures of eco-efficiency, we assess how industrial upgrading influences the eco-efficiency of a certain province with provincial panel data during the period 1998–2017. We find that industrial upgrading significantly promotes eco-efficiency and yields significantly positive spatial spillover effects. Our findings provide empirical evidence that the government should push forward industrial upgrading decisively, as well as strengthening inter-regional and central-provincial collaboration in promoting eco-efficiency.
