Our expertise

Our team of engineers and economists assists public authorities and the private sector in carrying out sustainability analyses, also called socio-economic analyses or cost-benefit analyses (ISO 14007), using:
Life Cycle Assessment (ISO 14040/44) and the monetization of environmental impacts (ISO 14008)
– Economic Evaluation: cost-benefit analysis
– Social Evaluation: quantification of jobs, impacts on human health and all other effects on humans.

RDC Environment contributed to the development of the ISO 14008 standard – Monetary evaluation of environmental impacts and related environmental aspects.

RDC Environment, in partnership with Bo Weidema, developed a reference method for monetizing impacts on resource scarcity, published in the peer-reviewed journal Resources.
