Topics of address
Under the thematic heading Environmental Economics we address a wide range of topics, including:
- Design of economic policy tools for least-cost environmental policy
- Development of environmental assessment tools like shadow pricing
- Cost/benefit analysis, including monetarisation of environment impacts
- Environmental policy reviews (ex-post, ex-ante) to assess economic costs and environmental returns
- Dematerialisation and decoupling of economic growth from environmental impact
- Assessing the effectiveness of environmental policy tools like emissions trading, emission charges, standards and negotiated agreements
- Quantifying the extent of environmentally damaging subsidies
- Greening national and regional tax systems
CE Delft’s economists have played a leading role in recent discussions on the budgeting of Dutch environmental policy and the need to adopt more cost-effective approaches. In recent years we’ve used our expertise to design cost-effective policies in many areas, including Transport Pricing and Aviation & Maritime Shipping.
Our clients include three Dutch ministries (Environment, Economic Affairs and Finance), the European Commission, the Netherlands Bureau for Economic Policy Analysis, Friends of the Earth-The Netherlands, industries and institutions like Visa-Green Card, the Stimular Foundation and Dutch trade associations like VNPI (petrochemicals) and NOGEPA (oil and gas exploration).
