Based on the perspective of all factors, this article uses the super-efficiency SBM model that considers undesirable output to measure the carbon emission efficiency in the Yangtze River Delta, and studies the impact of foreign trade on the carbon emission efficiency by establishing the panel model. The study found that the overall carbon emission efficiency in the Yangtze River Delta is relatively high, among which Shanghai has the highest efficiency. In addition, there is a significant positive correlation between foreign trade and carbon emission efficiency, and expanding the level of foreign trade can further improve carbon emission efficiency. Finally, according to the above conclusions, the corresponding policy recommendations are given.
