Abstract

As one of the significant carbon emissions countries, China faces enormous pressure to protect the environment. This paper discusses the Environmental Kuznets Curve (EKC) movements influenced by China's national and regional macro policies. This comparative study analyzes the economic growth and corresponding environmental policy changes of individual economic regions in the east, middle, and west of China. Under China's macro policies and critical policy orientations, the analysis found that the EKC of three economic regions shows different movements trends. The eastern region will first reach its peak environmental degradation level and initiate environmental improvement. The central region will second meet its turning point with further regulations and policies. Due to its backward economy, the western region has a slow pace to get to the turning point at last. This paper also predicts the future development in the environmental policies of the three regions. Using the EKC methodology, policymakers can have a long-term perspective on ameliorating environmental degradation by formulating macro policies that are more in line with national conditions, and conducive to environmental improvement. China will expect to usher in a significant turning point in the EKC in the next decade.
