Environmental Economics

The Study of Choices

Environmental economics is dedicated to helping society choose how best to manage our common resources for long term sustainability. Environmental economics is the foundation of sustainability. It is an interdisciplinary science that uses both quantitative and qualitative measurements to document sustainable decisions, policies, and actions.

Crane Associates uses environmental economics to determine the value of clean water and air, a healthy ecosystem, and an atmosphere that doesn’t melt our glaciers. We use it to determine life cycle costs; climate change impacts; sustainable job creation; socio-economic impact analysis, and in environmental benefit/cost analysis. We value Mother Nature.
