For public or public-private investment decision- making it is imperative that social desirability, usefulness and necessity of the particular investment are investigated.

We provide our clients with Social Cost-Benefit Analyses (SCBA) which express the social costs and benefits (welfare effects) in terms of money. This allows us to calculate the social return on investment which can be compared to the financial return on investment. We use the discounted cash flow method to compare project alternatives to each other.

Moreover, SCBAs are the means to compare different project alternatives to another, as well as to clarify the alternatives’ details to stakeholders. 

Our SCBAs deliver transparent information to support the decision making process.
