The IPCC (2006) method is used to estimate the carbon dioxide emissions of China’s Pan-Yangtze River Delta, Pan-Pearl River Delta and Bohai Rim regions from 2014 to 2016.And the three-stage Super-DEA model is used to analyze the carbon emission efficiency of the provinces in the three economic circles. The empirical results show that China’s carbon emission efficiency shows upward trend with volatility, but the improvement is slow, and the overall efficiency is not high. The inter-provincial gap is obvious, showing the pattern of “Pan-Pearl River Delta> Pan-Yangtze Triangle> Circum-Bohai region”.
