The construction of public projects plays a key role in the realization of economic and social sustainable development and urban prosperity. China has made remarkable achievements in public projects, such as the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge, the Three Gorges Project, the Bird's Nest Project, and the Shanghai World Expo Axis Project. In order to stimulate further economic growth, China needs more public projects. However, in the process of public project construction and management, waste of resources and environmental damage are serious. It is crucial to improve the low-carbon production behavior and low-carbon performance of public projects. Based on the previous literature research results, combining with the characteristics and interview results of public projects, this paper constructs a three-dimensional framework of low-carbon production behavior of public projects including 15 key factors. The key factors identified in this paper, on the one hand, can be used as the basis of the follow-up research, on the other hand, can provide a reference for the low-carbon production behavior management of public projects.
