In the face of the climate emergency, the economy must transform itself to drastically reduce our pressure on the environment, by reducing pollution and damage to biodiversity. The objective for PSE economists is to propose answers to these challenges, both to lay the foundations for a new model of sustainable growth in terms of production and consumption and to make the transition socially acceptable and economically viable. These issues are at the heart of the environmental problems facing the international community.
The OSE Initiative embodies the ambitious objective carried by PSE since its inception to open up economics, both internally by deepening its central paradigm, and externally by exploring its frontiers and its links with other disciplines. The OSE Initiative is interdisciplinary and carries out various projects whose specificity is to bring together PSE economists and researchers from other disciplines in the service of a particular problem and its renewal.
