With the global increasing concerns toward sustainability and climate change, green economic growth becomes one of the most important political targets. Eco-innovation gets more and more attention under this background. Based on literature review, the findings are: different understandings of eco-innovation among scholars; inconsistent conclusions concerning the roles of environmental policy and regulaitons within eco-innovation; quantitative study strategy is empployed to disclose determinants of eco-innovation such as technology push, market pull, self-regulation and factors within firms and the coupled problems are: the data analyzed is too early to disclose the eco-innovation practices in recent years; qualitative is in need; study on eco-innovation dynamics is more at conceptual level and further empirical study is in need.
