Our Benefit-Cost Analysis expands traditional cost-benefit equations to include ecosystem services. By taking nature and communities into account, we provide a more complete and objective picture of risks and long-term opportunity. Our expanded Benefit-Cost Analysis enables well-informed decisions that lead to ecological and economic resilience, jobs, and higher incomes.
We apply the most current, accepted practices for monetizing and comparing benefits including:
- Natural capital
- Human health
- Jobs and income
- Community cohesion
Most recently, we guided finalists in expanded benefit-cost analysis for the $1 billion National Disaster Resilience Competition sponsored by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The grants were awarded in January 2016.
