What is Environmental Economics?

Environmental economics focuses on the relationships between our production and consumption choices, the environment and society’s well-being. These choices can generate pollution, which affect ourselves and others.

Environmental economics studies the incentives that motivate these choices, how they impact the environment, how this impact affects our well-being and how we can fix the environmental problems we create. Within this mind frame, economists investigate topics such as climate change, deforestation and pollution control.
