Abstract

The critical role of green finance cannot be ignored in the current financial system. To explore the practical effects of China's green finance policies, this study takes panel data of A-share listed companies from 2014 to 2022 as the sample, takes listed companies in 8 GFRI pilot zones as the research objects, and uses the PSM-DID model to study the relationship between green finance policies and green production of listed companies. The findings show that green finance benefits enterprises in the long run as well as the short term, while the former is more pronounced. Furthermore, green finance policies can have immediate impact on enterprises, boosting their green productivity by 0.53%. This study helps to provide theoretical framework for the Chinese government on how to optimize the green finance system based on the GFRI pilot zones and promote green production in enterprises.
