- the pilot policy of SO2 emissions trading, employment, propensity score matching--difference in differences (PSM-DID)
Taking the pilot policy of SO2 emissions trading as a “quasi-natural experiment”, based on the data of industrial companies in China’s listed companies, propensity score matching--difference in differences (PSM-DID) is used to explore the causal relationship between market-oriented environmental regulation policies and enterprise employment. Studies have shown that the pilot policy of SO2 emissions trading has significantly increased the employment of enterprises. A group test based on the perspective of enterprise ownership shows that the pilot policy of SO2 emissions trading has significantly improved the employment level of state-owned enterprises, but the employment effect is not obvious for non-state-owned enterprises. Therefore, the government should formulate different environmental regulations for different types of enterprises to achieve a win-win situation of environmental protection and employment promotion.
