Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

One of the most challenging issues in the world is climate change. To cope with this challenge and the accompanying increasingly severe environmental risks, more and more countries have pledged to develop their green economy. In this regard, green total factor productivity is an important measure used to evaluate the extent to which a country is mitigating its environmental concerns and still ensuring sustainable economic development. In addition, green finance also plays a vital role in sustainable economic development. The purpose of this Special Issue is to explore the nexus between green finance and green total factor productivity, and we invite research that provides policy makers with a better understanding of green finance, green total factor productivity, and their nexus. Technical papers, state-of-the-art reviews, and short notes will all be considered and should relate to these two areas. In this Special Issue, we welcome original high-quality papers (both theoretical and empirical) considering all related research areas. Interdisciplinary studies are also highly encouraged. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  1. Development of data envelope analysis models;
  2. Mechanisms influencing green finance;
  3. Fintech in green finance;
  4. Fintech in green total factor productivity;
  5. Static and dynamic analyses;
  6. Social benefit analyses.
