We study the interaction of society and environment, environmental issues and problems, and nature conservation by applying economic theory and methods. We study both how economic actions affect natural resources and environment, and the preferred environmental behavior of the society and how it compares to the behavior in the markets. The goal is to find ways to fix market failures so that natural resources are utilized sustainably, while preventing the degradation of nature.
