How can government and industry create efficient and effective environmental policy?

Environmental policies have sweeping implications for business, citizens and the environment. Building policy is a complex process and there are numerous opportunities for things to go well – or poorly. Given this complexity, policy-makers face critical questions. How effective are different environmental policy instruments in achieving their objectives? How efficient are these instruments?

This research analyzes and distils the learnings from 204 academic articles and government reports to help policy-makers in government and industry create environmental policy that:

  • achieves its environmental goals
  • is cost effective
  • is relevant to those affected by these policies
  • demonstrates accountability to the public (where applicable)
