A ground-breaking OECD survey offers new insights to policy-makers on the factors that influence household behaviour towards the environment.

The OECD Environment Directorate has launched a new project on effects of public policy conditions on leveraging private financing for environmental and climate mitigation investments. An analysis on Effectiveness of Policies and Strategies to Increase the Capacity Utilisation of Intermittent Renewable Power Plants is now available.

This project investigates how behavioural economics can inform the design of “norm-based” environmental policies and “behaviourally robust” markets for ecosystem services.
This site has been created in order to share information and facilitate research on ‘environmental’ innovation. The intended audience is the professional public. The definitions that will be published here are an outcome of extensive groundwork by many researchers.
