Abstract: This paper examines whether the national green industrial policy (GIP) can effectively optimize the enterprises’ structural transformation and upgrading, and improve production efficiency of enterprises. Using China’s firm-level data from 1998 to 2007, we take the 2003 “Cleaner Production Promotion Law of PRC” as the turning point of GIP implementation, and employ the difference-in-differences (DID) method to explore the policy effect on total factor productivity (TFP) of enterprises. The analysis shows that GIP can enhance the enterprise’s resource allocation capability and TFP growth. The implementation path of policy mainly relies on the compensation mechanism to incentivize innovation and the elimination mechanism of market selection. Specifically, GIP enhances TFP growth by accelerating the dynamic replacement (enterprise entry and exit) and elimination mechanism of the market, and by promoting innovative production to enhance the enterprise’s production efficiency. Further heterogeneity analysis reveals that state-owned enterprises are more susceptible to the influence of GIP, and GIP exerts more restrictive impact on high-pollution industries. Also, GIP has more significant net spillover effect on technology-intensive enterprises. The study provides a reliable factual basis for the market effect of GIP and the direction for green industry development.
