Research on the upgrading strategy and eco-oriented development of industrial clusters based on low-carbon economyAuthor(s): Wei Jian-feng
Industry clusters are important carriers of China’s rapid economic development. In recent years, there have been problems in areas highly concentrated with industrial clusters, such as the shortage of energy and environmental deterioration. To break through the bottleneck of resources and environment, industrial clusters must be restructured and upgraded in an eco-oriented way. This paper has formulated a matrix of carbon emission and competitiveness to analyze the upgrading strategies of different industrial cluster types. In line with the findings, the paper further explores the mechanism of eco-industrial clusters, which has shown that the recycling of resources is the core of the cluster ecology, and innovation system provides condition for the eco-oriented development of industrial cluster. Finally, the paper analyzes the institutional supply and policy option in the construction of eco-industrial clusters.
