Endogenous Factor Analysis

The Carbon Performance of Public Projects in China

This study investigates how the endogenous factors of public projects affect carbon performance. Taking the logical framework approach, a research model and hypotheses are proposed to evaluate the effects of endogenous project factors, including human resources, funding, materials, and project management methodology on project carbon performance. Questionnaires were distributed to project professionals in China and a structural equation model was deployed to analyze these effects. The results show that funding, materials, and project management methodology have a significant influence on public project carbon per-formance, whereas human resources have no significant effects. Recommendations on how to improve carbon performance are provided.
