Against the dual background of the vigorous shape of digital economy and the severe pressure for carbon reduction, exploring the mechanism of the relationship between digitalization level and carbon reduction of highly energy-intensive enterprises is one of the current hot topics in theoretical and practical circles. This paper selects panel data of listed companies with high energy consumption from 2007 to 2019 and adopts a threshold-regression method to empirically test the impact of digitalization level on corporate carbon emission reduction It turns out that the digitalization level of enterprises has both an “inverted U” effect and a heterogeneous effect on carbon emissions. Enterprise technological innovation has both a threshold action and a regulating action on the influence of digitalization level on carbon emissions. It can play a role in accelerating the digitalization level to the inhibition of the increase in carbon emissions in advance and has a reinforcing effect in accelerating the reduction of enterprise carbon emissions.
