The EFr per unit of output for all regions decline year by year.At the same time,by using the fixed effects panel data model, this study empirically tests the influencing factors of the EFr.The results show that the Environmental Kuznets Curve is existent and the added value of real estate industry and foreign direct investment have positive impacts on the EFr, while the effects of the lagging environment regulation and business performance are negative.At last ,several suggestions are provided,which can be the theoretical and practical references for the sustainable development of real estate development companies.
