We have built a reputation in our field working to identify the relationships between a region's economic health, quality of life, and the condition of its environmental resources.
We provide economic analysis and support to parties working to improve the quality of degraded environmental resources. Our analyses have covered a wide variety of topics and geographic scales, from examining the benefits and costs of cleanup alternatives for contaminated soil and water at individual Superfund sites, to estimating the value of restoring ecosystem services throughout entire watersheds. In these analyses, our economists employ a holistic perspective, integrating global issues, such as climate change, into local and regional matters.
In addition to our consulting work, we also provide litigation support that relates to environmental quality. Our economists regularly serve as expert witnesses in litigation involving natural-resource injuries, including groundwater contamination and oil spills. We bring this expertise, as well as our extensive consulting experience, to all of our work involving environmental quality.
