Summary of "Does command-and-control regulation promote green innovation performance? Evidence from China's industrial enterprises."

Many developing countries including China have launched command-and-control regulation (CCR) to achieve sustainable development. However, we know little about whether CCR promotes green innovation performance. This study empirically analyses the impact of CCR, which is represented by China's eleventh Five-Year Plan (FYP) environmental regulation, on enterprise green innovation performance and use green innovation efficiency as the measure of innovation. Super-SBM DEA model, difference-in-differences (DID) and difference-in-difference-in-differences (DDD) methods are employed to investigate 496 industrial enterprises in China's A-share market for the 2002-2017 period. Moreover, we distinguish each treat group from the control group by using continuous variables and consider enterprise features in the analysis. The results find that, in general, the eleventh FYP environmental regulation negatively influences enterprise green innovation efficiency in a short-term through reducing cash flows. More specifically, the eleventh FYP CCR generates a detrimental effect on small enterprises, state-owned enterprises, and enterprises in China's western and eastern regions. Overall, this empirical analysis suggests that the government should consider the effect of CCR on economy and focus on the heterogeneity of enterprises during designing environmental policies.

Algae of the division Chlorophyta, in which the green pigment of CHLOROPHYLL is not masked by other pigments. Green algae have over 7000 species and live in a variety of primarily aquatic habitats. Only about ten percent are marine species, most live in freshwater. They are more closely related to the green vascular land PLANTS than any other group of algae.

The use of biological mechanisms, usually involving living organisms such as bacteria, for the reduction or regulation of the population of noxious, destructive, or dangerous pests. Environmental concerns have focused attention on natural forms of disease control as potentially safe and effective alternatives to chemical pesticides. This has led to increased efforts to develop control strategies that rely on natural predators and parasites or that involve genetically engineered microbial pest control agents.

A technique to self-regulate brain activities provided as a feedback in order to better control or enhance one's own performance, control or function. This is done by trying to bring brain activities into a range associated with a desired brain function or status.
