Research carried out concerns mainly the following areas: - costs of damage caused to the environment and to health (externalities) in relation to the
behaviour of economic agents; - cost-benefit and cost-efficiency analyses;- economic tools (taxes, emissions trading market, flexible mechanisms); - life-cycle
analyses and inventory; - sustainable development indicators.
