This paper investigates influential factors determining the types of policy innovation at the field of local sustainability. Theoretical perspectives of political market and policy diffusion and innovation provide conceptual framework to reconfigure policy typology of innovation related to sustainability. As using logistics and multinomial logistic regression analysis with 1212 observations of local governments, this paper confirms that local policy orientation related to environment and social equity is more likely to adopt policy innovation for local sustainability, while policy orientation of economic development is not likely to adopt. Moreover, administrative manager is to promote the local sustainability through policy innovation in order to achieve both of long-term growth of local community and professional or administrative career.
