The SACAME project supports the socio-economic analysis of chemicals by allowing a better quantification and monetisation of health- and environmental impacts. This research, funded by the EC, builds on the OECD work on quantifying the social costs of environmental externalities, particulary in recent years on the costs of air pollution. Latest report: Environmental and health impacts caused by Perfluorooctanoic acid.
Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) is being used in fluoropolymer production, as surface treatment agents and for the manufacture of side-chain fluorinated polymers. However, there is evidence that PFOA and its salts have a number of hazardous properties that may cause harm to human health and the environment. This report evaluates existing economic assessments and valuations of impacts arising from PFOA and its salts.
This report reviews the literature on the impact of real-time information provision on consumer decision-making. In addition, it describes the results of a study in which about 7000 households in Ontario, Canada were provided with in-home displays linked to smart meters that provided real-time feedback on electricity consumption.
A broader use of environmental taxation or emission trading systems would be one of the most efficient and effective ways of promoting green growth.
Ce projet étudie comment l'économie comportementale peut éclairer la conception de politiques environnementales «normatives» et de marchés «robustes sur le plan du comportement» pour les services écosystémiques.
