Abstract

This article is based on the green patent application data of A-share listed companies on the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges from 2010 to 2020. It empirically analyzes the actual impact and underlying mechanism of the digital economy on green technology innovation, further analysis was conducted on the moderating effect of environmental policy uncertainty in the relationship between the two. Research indicates: (1) digital economy level has a remarkable promoting effect on green technology innovation in enterprises. (2) The results of the moderating effect indicate that perceived uncertainty strengthens green innovation orientation of enterprises, generating a significant positive moderating effect in the relationship between digital economy level and green technology innovation in enterprises. The research can provide marginal empirical support for the coordinated development of the digital economy and green economy under the dual carbon goals.
