Our work reimagines the relationship between socio-economic systems and the environment. Projects typically consist of circular economy, material flow, analysis, planning, design and implementation of environmental economic policies, along with ex-ante and ex-post evaluation from an economic, environmental and legal perspective. ENT uses methods and techniques from ecological, environmental and public economics. Environmental taxation is one of our main areas of expertise and, more broadly, designing economic instruments for environmental policy. We work from local level (e.g. projects of “greening” fiscal ordinances or waste charges) to regional, national and international levels.
ENT deploys a variety of methods tailored for each project. For example:
- Applied economics
- Statistics and quantitative methods
- Econometric modelling
- Economic impact assessment
- Input–output analysis
- Computable General Equilibrium models
- Environmental valuation
Evaluation of public and private projects: cost–benefit and cost-effectiveness analysis, multicriteria analysis, etc.
