Economic Assessment

Within the economic assessment we offer the following services: 

  • We have extensive and recognized experience in the assessment of the economic and social impacts of climate change (mitigation and adaptation);
  • We carry out economic analyzes of specific sectors such as energy, transport, housing, water, agriculture, infrastructure, among others, including assessment of external costs and the quantification of indirect impacts;
  • As well as economic valuation of air quality (for example, in the Clean Air For Europe initiative), water emissions (for example, the EC Water Framework Directive) and waste management options;
  • And assessment of environmental impacts and public health.
