This paper studies the problem of a company which expands its stochastic production capacity in irreversible investments by purchasing capital and faces both fixed and proportional costs.
We examine whether the use of the environment, proxied by CO2 emissions, as a factor of production contributes, in addition to conventional factors of production to output growth, and thus it should be accounted for in total factor productivity growth (TFPG) measurement and deducted from the "residual".
