Metroeconomica

Metroeconomica specializes in economic analysis, public policies, the environment, natural resources and sustainable development.

We work for a wide range of clients, including national, regional and local governments, businesses and non-governmental organizations. We also participate in research projects and other innovative initiatives.

Our team is made up of experts with extensive experience in the field of environmental economics and natural resources, public policies and climate change. Some of us also hold academic positions, which allows us a direct and constant access to the most advanced knowledge in the subject. We also have a clear international vocation.

Founded in 1983 in the United Kingdom, Metroeconomica has participated in numerous highly specialized technical projects, developing a recognized reputation for the quality and rigor of its work. From July 2017 we started a new phase in Bilbao, adding new talent to the team and joining forces with the Factor Group. We started this phase with the enthusiasm and the renewed energy of undertaking a new project, but with the commitment to quality, innovation and originality in each of our works and solutions.
