讲座题目:the environmental performance of the chinese manufacturing sector: an inputoriented approach 中国制造业的环境友好型表现:基于投入要素距离函数的测度


讲座梗概:in the past several years, the chinese government has been pursuing “green” economic growth. an important issue is to reduce the production of undesirable outputs (e.g., pollution) which are unavoidable during the production process. the environmental performance index (epi) introduced by färe, grosskopf and hernandez-sancho (2004) is an appropriate tool to study this issue. there are two restrictions in current empirical studies that adopt epi: (i) only the “min-max” reference vectors are used. (ii) the empirical production technology in a panel data set is limited to the grand frontier constructed from all data.

this paper modifies the existing formula to address the above two issues. it is shown that our input-oriented epi is well-defined for many choices of reference vectors and it allows for different empirical production frontiers over time. the new formula is adopted to study the environmental performance of the chinese manufacturing sector from 2003 to 2014. our empirical results show that there has been a continuous improvement of environmental performance in the chinese manufacturing sector over the investigated period. we also find evidence to support the pollutant haven hypothesis that foreign direct investment reduces the environmental performance of chinese manufacturing sector. in conclusion, this paper proposes an alternative approach to the computation of environmental performance. this new formulation solves some of the problems faced by the existing one.
