Innovative green development has become the direction of global development. Based on the R&D-driven theory, this paper builds an innovative green development efficiency index, and uses the super-efficient DEA-SBM model to measure the innovative green development efficiency and green total factor productivity of 18 countries around the world from 2008 to 2017. Through empirical findings: (1) Globally, technological innovation is not obvious for the efficiency of green economic development; (2) Green discovery efficiency varies greatly between countries; (3) Technological progress is again confirmed as the main factor that promotes the growth of green economic efficiency in various countries power.
