摘要

This study explores the effect of air pollution regulation on industrial firm productivity. In particular, it investigates the effects of controls on the exogenous variation in sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions in the context of China’s Two Control Zones (TCZ) policy, which was implemented in 1998. We compile a large panel of geolocated industrial firms, detailed county-level characteristics, and a rich set of geospatial information derived from satellite data for the analysis. Our identification strategy uses the instrumental variable of local suitability for engineering-based power plants in the first-differencing setup as a means to improve the comparability of growth trends between the treatment and control groups. The findings show that this regulation has substantially lowered the growth of firm-level total factor productivity, and our estimated adverse effects are greater than previous findings in the existing literature.
