The project analyses how participation in global supply chains hampers or facilitates the investment in state-of-the-art production equipment or production processes that are more environmentally efficient.

Related to this it investigates the effectiveness of incentives such as financial grants, energy taxes, or carbon trading schemes at changing carbon emissions. These issues are investigated using firm level data for Germany and China.
