Enviromental economic research
The Environmental Economic Research Division at Sweden's National Institute of Economic Research conducts economic impact analyses to provide a better basis for decisions on Sweden's environmental policy.
With the environmental quality objectives adopted by the Swedish Parliament, environmental policy decisions must meet higher standards of cost effectiveness and be preceded by economic impact analyses. We evaluate environmental policy instruments through our research, our commissioned assignments and our work on developing models.
