Analysis on Transportation Carbon Efficiency and Potential of Emissions Reduction under Green Development: Evidence from 54 Countries along the Belt and Road

Accurate and objective measurement of transportation carbon emission efficiency is conducive to promoting green development and formulating differentiated carbon emission reduction policies. Based on the carbon emission data of transportation in 2016, the model of superefficient-SBM-undesirable output is adopted to measure the carbon emission efficiency of countries along the “belt and road initiative” (BRI). The result show that: The high-income countries had the highest carbon efficiency in transportation; the middle-income countries were second; and the low-income countries had the lowest efficient in BRI. Most of them were inefficient, and only four countries’ transportation carbon efficiency exceeded 1. In terms of energy saving and emission reduction potential, most countries have great potential in carbon emission reduction. This study provides a new perspective for measuring the efficiency of carbon emissions. These results contribute to the formulation of green development plans for energy conservation and international transportation.
