AbstractWith the deepening division of the global value chains (GVCs), increasing service input and activating the production factor market provide a feasible path to achieve green upgrading in GVCs. Whether service inputs in manufacturing sectors could relieve the carbon emission pressure of export has become a major issue for urgent solution. We measure carbon emission intensity index of export from the perspective of actual gains and environmental cost of GVCs participation. On this basis, we empirically analyze the impact of service input on embodied carbon of export. The result shows that the service input in manufacturing sectors reduces the export carbon emission intensity. Then we further empirically test the impact mechanism, which effect on embodied carbon emission through factor allocation effect, technical progress effect and carbon transfer effect. Therefore, increasing service inputs in manufacturing sectors should be a key point of supply side reform. This paper could provide a practical and effective path for China’s trade structural transformation under the low carbon background.
