Global supply chains, environmental regulation and green innovation

Start of Project 01/2016
End of Project 12/2020

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 and related to this 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.
