Environment Regulation and Green Total Factor Productivity: A Case Study in the Yellow River Basin

Xinzhe Qi


From the perspective of the dual effects of cost and technological innovation, the impacts of two types of environmental regulations and their synergistic effects on green total factor productivity are analyzed. Research shows that: the command type, market-oriented green total factor productivity improvements of the basin show a positive role in promoting, at the same time, market-oriented regulation strength instead of their own technological innovation ability in the work together in the valley of green in the process of the total factor productivity improvements, cooperate efforts to achieve better coordination between them, realize the coordinated development.
