Mission Statement

The “Environmental and Resource Economics, Environmental Management” Research Department investigates the optimal function of markets and institutions with regard to environmental issues and resource scarcity. A key focus is placed on European energy and climate policy. Economists in the Research Department conduct economic assessments of instruments and policies that impact the environment. They also identify conflicts between economic and environmental goals. Given the universal shortage of resources, cost efficiency as well as the equitable distribution of costs in society are key criteria in the assessments conducted by the Department.
