Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, carbon emission reduction has become one of the most important issues regarding the promotion of sustainable economic development across the world. Achieving "net zero" and carbon neutrality in the near future and promoting sustainable economic growth have become the commitments of more than 120 countries to the international community (UNEP, 2021). Two key influencing factors play important roles in achieving such goals. The first influencing factor is the rapid development of global technological innovation, especially digital technological innovation. This technological innovation provides new development momentum for comprehensively improving efficiency in all sectors of society, including the service industry, and thus plays a positive role in reducing carbon emissions in global economic activities. The second influencing factor is the rapid development of energy-related markets. The evolution of the energy financial market, the establishment of a broader regional carbon trading market, and the reform of the energy sales market (including electricity and oil)have effectively led to the improvement of carbon emission efficiency, gradually shifting the global economy towards green development. Although typical cases can confirm these impacts, the degree, path, effect, or mechanisms of the influencing factors still need to be verified by quantitative research. Therefore, papers addressing these topics are invited for this Special Issue, especially those combining a high academic standard with a practical focus on providing quantitative results for the implication of technological innovation and energy-related market evolution to carbon emission.

Taking China’s emission trading system (ETS) pilot in 2013 as a quasi-natural experiment, this paper uses the difference-in-differences (DID) models to study whether the regional pilot ETS can promote technological innovation in enterprises. In addition, this paper examines the influence mechanism of the ETS innovation effect, with a focus on three key dimensions of the carbon market efficiency: market price effectiveness, market product diversity, and market order normativity. The results show that the pilot ETS has significantly promoted the technological innovation of regulated enterprises, specifically, 1.405*** for the total R&D investment, and 2.783*** for the number of patent applications. Moreover, the regional carbon price has a positive moderating effect on the innovation effect of ETS. Meanwhile, the innovation effect is more significant when the gap between the carbon price and the marginal abatement cost (MAC) of CO2 is smaller, when the carbon financial derivatives are more abundant, or when the local market supervision is stronger. This study provides empirical evidence for the improvement of the national unified market and provides useful policy implications for developing countries to design ETS suitable for their national conditions.
