Abstract: Governments are the main institutions of environmental governance, but the investment-output results of environmental governance differ across different governments. This paper uses the SBM model to measure the static performance of environmental governance in eastern China from 2008 to 2014, and then uses Tobit regression analysis to identify factors influencing environmental performance. The results show that the environmental performance of seven provinces has a relatively large variation, and the proportion of environmental governance investment in GDP has the greatest impact on environmental performance.

Keywords: environmental governance; performance evaluation; non-expected output; SBM-Tobit model; eastern China.
