Policy & Strategy

Are you wondering how best to tackle an environmental problem? Do you want to design a new policy that addresses an environmental issue?

We have enormous experience of thinking about the design of policy instruments to address environmental problems. Our experience covers market-based instruments, such as taxes and charges, emissions trading, tradable compliance credits, deposit refunds, and refunded emissions charges, as well as regulatory approaches, including linking these to damage costs.

Our major reviews of environmental taxes and charges, and market-based instruments more generally, mean that we are extremely well placed to understand how novel mechanisms can be used across different environmental media.

Whether your questions relate to waste, natural resources, natural capital, water, pesticides, air pollution, climate change, energy/fuel use or noise, we can help design the most efficient and effective mechanisms to deliver environmental improvement.
