Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The need to secure sustainable resources and instill environmental economics is becoming increasingly important as part of efforts to achieve peak carbon. In this context, this Special Issue directs its focus at these two concepts, sustainable resources and environmental economics, seeking to bolster commitments to the dual conditions of environmental and resource development and carbon emission constraints. Consequently, th overarching aim of the Special Issue is to gather together a series of manuscripts covering to leading methods designed to ensure the resource and environmental sustainability associated with constraints on carbon emissions.

The closely related topics of sustainable resources and environmental economics include important subtopics such as energy economics, environmental policy and management, climate change economics, and others. This call invites the submission and discussion of the latest methods to tackle these challenges through analyses that center on global, regional, and urban studies. Moreover, we welcome papers providing different levels of analyses and assessing the complex interactions of resource and environmental economics and their impacts on people, societies, and infrastructure.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Behavior related to the overseas market has become an essential method for enterprises to acquire international resources. We aimed to do so using a difference-in-differences (DID) approach with the collected data of companies from China’s high-polluting industries in the A-share market between 2011 and 2019. The present papers aims to find the influence of the behavior towards the enterprises’ green transformation. The research results showed the following: (1) The behavior related to the overseas market not only increased enterprises’ environmental protection investment but also promoted enterprises’ green technology innovation, which promoted enterprises’ green transformation. (2) The mechanism analysis shows that corporate investment in protection of the environment increased mainly through the improved consciousness for the responsibility of environment, while corporates’ green technology innovation not only requires the increased awareness for environmental responsibility but also requires enterprises to learn advanced environmental protection methods and knowledge. (3) The role of the behavior related to the overseas market in promoting the green transformation of enterprises was more obvious in state-owned enterprises, and the enterprises with relatively better business performance were more enthusiastic about green technology innovation because of the motivation of advantage creation; thus, the promoting effect of the behavior related to the overseas market on the enterprises’ green transformation was more obvious. This paper provides empirical evidence and policy implications to help promote the green transformation of enterprises. Full article
