Our economists and policy experts use economic modeling and policy analysis to harness the efficiency and productivity of the economy for sustainability. These approaches discourage pollution and other economic side-effects while simultaneously helping to develop and support new markets and engines of growth for the 21st century.
Through our Sustainable Economics Program, we publish scholarly
papers, testify before government bodies, and provide technical
assistance to state, national, and international organizations
working to achieve a sustainable economy.
Sustainable Economics focuses on three principle areas:
Environment and Economy
Research in this area tackles the issue of how to improve
our economy and our environment at the same time, with a particular
focus on creating employment and preserving well-paying jobs.
