Abstract

Environmental problems are threatening China's sustainable future. China began implementation of several environmental policies for the late 1970s and stringency of the regulations is increasing over time. We utilize a province-level economy wide data set over 1987-2001 to measure various components of productivity within a joint production model, which considers both market and environmental outputs. While productivity level of a joint production is relatively constant over time, environmental productivity decreased, especially during the periods of 1991-1994. This was a period of significant improvements in the economy and productivity for the Chinese market. This inescapable fact directs our attention to a conventionally neglected dimension of productivity, i.e., the less efficient utilization of pollution abatement technologies.
