Abstract: As China's manufacturing industry's carbon dioxide emissions have increased over the years, environmental problems have become increasingly prominent. In many studies, trade scale, product structure and technological factors are used to influence trade and environmental relations. But in the context of the continuous refinement of the trade industry in recent years, we should consider that Chinese manufacturing in the global value chain has been significantly contributing to carbon emissions. This paper classifies Chinese manufacturing into four technical categories: low-tech, medium- and low-tech, medium-high-tech, and high-tech. It calculates the exports' added value and embedded global value. The status index and carbon emissions, with scale effect, structural effect, technological effect and global value chain position as independent variables, the empirical research on the impacts of China's manufacturing export on carbon emissions in the global value chain.
