Title:China’s ETS Improves Firms’ Competitiveness

Abstract: China has launched seven regional pilots of emission trading scheme (ETS) to limit its carbon emissions. Taking advantage of the variations in the regional ETS pilots across regions and sectors and over time, we employ a difference-in-difference-in-differences (DDD) approach to evaluate the joint effects of ETS on both low-carbon innovation and competitiveness at the firm level. We find that the ETS pilots contribute to firms’ innovation transition towards low-carbon technologies. This policy-induced innovation effect is more pronounced in encouraging low-carbon technological changes into radical innovation relative to incremental innovation. Moreover, ETS leads to gains in firm value through the rising stock of low-carbon innovation spurred by ETS. Some heterogeneity across regional pilots are detected. The more active pilots—measured by carbon price and turnover rate of allowance trading—tend to have more intense low-carbon innovation and higher returns of market values both at the firm-level.
