The goal of the Economics of Sustainability Programme is to better understand the complex interaction between the economy and environment, and provide insights into how this integrated system could be made more sustainable.

Research is undertaken in partnership with the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET) at the Oxford Martin School and in collaboration with the Oxford Energy Network.

Researchers explore natural capital, measure wealth creation, stimulate green technology innovation, assess climate and economic risk, model the post-carbon transition, and support reforms to electricity and energy markets for the transition. New methods of modelling economy-ecosystem interactions enhance understanding of the impact of climate policies on economic growth, employment, and political economy.
