In this paper, we examine the impact of trade openness on bank risk-taking behavior. Using a panel dataset of 291 banks from 37 emerging countries over the period from 1998 to 2012, we find that higher trade openness decreases bank risk-taking. The results are robust when we use alternative bank risk-taking proxies and alternative estimation method...

... And Cheng et al. (2020) also calculated the wastewater treatment efficiency of 681 villages using by SMB-DEA model. However, wastewater discharge is a complex process, which involves all aspects of social development, and only through efficiency evaluation cannot reflect the influent factors on wastewater discharge reduction comprehensively (Ruan & Yan 2022). In addition, the results of the DEA model mainly depend on the selection of input and output variables, which are greatly impacted by outliers. ...
... The research status consisting of massive decentralized, micro, and subjective discussions goes against reaching an in-depth consensus on the chain reaction triggered by the implementation of sharing activities. As sharing activities exist in multiple sectors [28] and bring both positive and negative effects [29], it is urgent to identify the ultimate benefits and losses from a macro and systemic perspective. ...
... where P, GDP, E, C represents the population, gross domestic production, energy consumption, and carbon emissions, respectively. Over the past decades, the Kaya identity has been widely used in conjunction with Logarithmic Mean Divisia Index (LMDI) decomposition method [18][19][20][21], one of the index decomposition methods, to quantify the impact of different driving factors on carbon emissions [22][23][24][25][26]. In recent years, as more and more countries put forward their carbon neutrality commitments, the Kaya identity has also been used for the prospective analysis of carbon reduction potential by reasonable scenario simulations of driving factors [27][28][29][30][31]. ...
... The concept of sustainability is growing in importance for local urban governance, and indicator-based assessments represent a popular means for its implementation [81]. Indicators are a powerful tool to address urban sustainability issues and have gained increasing attention [82]. However, making them a universal 'language' to solve this global problem remains a challenge and a controversy. ...

... Therefore, it is very necessary to accurately assess the level of urban IGG and explore the key influencing factors in China. Moreover, a better understanding of the complexity and dynamics of SUD under different development pathways is necessary for cities to achieve IGG and sustainable development goals (Ali-Toudert and Ji 2017;Ruan et al. 2020), but there is a gap in the literature on the scenario setting for the realization of sustainable development goals of Chinese cities. ...
... Adopting such a selfless lifestyle implies that certain social norms have been converted into personal norms [76]. However, supportive studies show that a selfless lifestyle may also be challenged by barriers, such as unsustainable daily habits, redundant wants and needs, and identities tied to consumption [100], especially in emerging markets [101,102]. These consumers still identify themselves (self-identities) with their consumption practices due to the increased availability of products fuelled by rapid economic growth in these economies [103]. ...
... In addition, the methodological procedures defined by (Tranfield et al. 2003) were also followed, namely: planning, development, and presentation of results. These phases were corroborated by other authors (Dai et al. 2019). Therefore, the bibliometric analysis of a specific research area implies the adoption of a methodical and structured research strategy to select the documents to be included in the respective systematization of the literature (Diógenes et al. 2020). ...
