About Martijn

Expertise:

  • Reviews of climate policy, environmental taxes and subsidies
  • Greening the tax system
  • Cost-benefit and cost-effectiveness analyses

With my economic background (General Economics at the Erasmus University), I make frequent use of my economic expertise, combining it with my knowledge of assessment methods and behavioural economics and my technical know-how. Since joining CE Delft in 1999 I’ve worked on green taxation, the effectiveness of energy subsidies and environmental taxes and cost-benefit analyses on a range of issues.

The pricing of externalities is one of the core tools for securing environmental and climate targets as well as for improving human prosperity in its widest sense – which is why ‘getting the prices right’ serves as my main compass in the projects I’m involved in at CE Delft. Above all else, developing a green economy will have to be grounded in this principle.

My ambition is to help create and develop effective and viable economic instruments for environmental policy-makers. In this I find it important to contribute distinctive knowledge and understanding that will help the client move forward.
