Equation 3 is a replica of Eq. 1 but with environmental subsidy added to it, while Eq. 4 is a replica of Eq. 2 plus subsidy. In Eqs. 3 and 4, however, the number of observations has dropped to 100, from 140, as four countries did not offer environmental subsidy throughout the estimation period 2001–2010. In Eqs. 3 and 4, the estimated coefficient of the additional variable (environmental subsidy) is positive and statistically significant, implying that a 1 % increase in environmental subsidy would stimulate investment in green business by between 0.36 and 0.44 %, respectively.
