Edge offers specialist environmental economics expertise. Our projects range from economic analysis in support of individual infrastructure projects through appraisals covering entire companies and sectors and spanning infrastructure and property across the public and private sectors.

Within the IS framework, we offer a range of economic options assessment services. This includes Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) or Multi-Criteria Analysis (MCA) as part of the initiative development process, development of benefits management plans as well as strategic analysis to help inform the overall sustainability ambitions of a programme of work. Our analysis draws on a wide array of previous projects and initiatives, allowing us to deliver a high quality, cost-effective service.

Sustainability Outcomes

Detailed economic analysis can be an important tool when it comes to making the business case for sustainability initiatives, or choosing between different options. CBA and MCA are both increasingly used in infrastructure projects and as part of IS strategies.

Our environmental economics services can support clients targeting ISv2.0 Ecn-1, Ecn-5, and ISv1.2 Man-7, including the development of the related credit summary forms. Similar analysis can also be applied as part of a renewable energy options investigation in line with ISv2.0 Ene-2 and ISv1.2 Ene-1. The piloting of an updated category from the ISv2.0 Economic Theme is an Innovation Challenge under ISv1.2.
