IEc is an industry leader in the field of endangered species economic analysis and environmental benefits assessment. IEc has over 12 years of experience analyzing the complex relationships between species protection and economic activity, and has published its primary economic research in peer-reviewed economics journals. We understand that the following acts have the potential to affect nearly every sector of the economy:

  • U.S. Endangered Species Act;
  • The Marine Mammal Protection Act;
  • The Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act; and
  • Canada's Species at Risk Act.

IEc has modeled the effect of species protection on a broad spectrum of industries, including real estate development, fishing, forestry, power generation, mining, agriculture, ranching, and recreation in nearly every region of the United States and Canada. Clients include the U.S. government, Canadian government, state governments, and indigenous and tribal governments.

Because of our frequent involvement in the economic analysis of federal regulations, IEc is up-to-date on recent changes in legislative and administrative requirements for conducting such work. Our experience provides an in-depth understanding of the regulatory process, timelines, and public review process, as well as an appreciation for the concerns and interests of the audience that is reached by our analyses.
