Evaluation and Assessment

Brief description

Sustainability requires good strategies – strategies where the consequences for the environment, industry and society are largely assessable. An early, systematic evaluation of policies, instruments and programmes helps to achieve the set objectives, increases legitimacy and acceptance and promotes “learning” policy approaches. The IÖW develops new methodological evaluation approaches and devises impact assessment and evaluation for politics, society and industry. We also draw up ecological-economic assessments – especially for handling natural resources – as well as energy and climate accounts for products and technologies.
