In the dynamically changing external environment, it is the core issue of enterprise innovation strategy that how enterprises maintain a sustained level of innovation by creating their own capabilities. In addition, the open innovation proposed by Chesbrough provides a new way of thought for innovation management. This essay constructs conceptual models of several sets of variables relationships between environmental protection industry innovation performance and external innovation resources, which is based on 85 environmental protection enterprises as the questionnaire objects and a path analysis of the model is conducted. The results show that the cooperation with horizontal and vertical enterprises can significantly affect innovation performance only by virtue of the intermediary effect of the enterprise network dynamic capability, and government-industry-academy-research cooperation can directly improve innovation performance. Mechanistic study not only reveals that the joint action by external innovation resources and network dynamic capabilities can influence the innovation and motivation of environmental protection enterprises, but also reflects that a major source of environmental protection innovation is the internal resources. This provides theoretical guidance for enterprises to effectively implement the open innovation strategy in the innovation practice.
