Resource-based enterprises, as an important part of China’s macro-economy and an important guarantee for the operation of the national economy, have brought serious environmental pollution problems as well as great economic benefits. Under the background of the new era of ecological priority in China, the analysis of the environmental behavior choice of resource-based enterprises as micro-subjects is of guiding significance to the construction of environmental governance system in China. Based on the results of 503 questionnaires of resource-based enterprises, this paper combs the internal mechanism of corporate reputation, leader awareness, technical support and market profits influencing corporate environmental behavior, introduces corporate environmental will as mediating variable, knowledge sharing and corporate social responsibility as regulating variable, constructs a theoretical model of corporate environmental behavior drivers. The hypothesis is put forward and tested by Structural Equation Model and Hierarchical Regression Analysis. The results show that: corporate reputation, leader awareness, technical support and market profits all have significant positive effects on corporate environmental will; At the same time, corporate environmental will plays a full intermediary role in the process of corporate reputation and leader awareness influencing the corporate environmental behavior, and has part of the intermediary role in the process of technical support and market profits influencing corporate environmental behavior. Knowledge sharing plays a moderating role in the process of transforming leader awareness into corporate environmental behavior. When the level of knowledge sharing is higher, it has a strong regulatory effect on the transformation of leader awareness to the corporate environmental will.
