Vivid Economics has been producing innovative economics since 2006, expanding quickly its range of expertise.

Vivid Economics was established by Robin Smale and Prof Cameron Hepburn in 2006, with the ambition to fill the gap between traditional economics and management consultancies in producing economics with impact. With the aim to cater to the growing market for creative economists and an ambition to enhance the quality and robustness of analysis focused on the environment, Vivid Economics initially launched with a focus on natural resources and climate change. Soon, it expanded into new niches and our experts are proud to offer their services in a suite of diverse disciplines ranging from climate change and natural resources, to industrial transformation and energy, international development, trade, urbanisation, earth observation, and transaction support.

Today, Vivid Economics is a well-established company with global reach continues to put economics to good use for its customers all around the world.

In 2015, Jason Eis joined Vivid Economics as Executive Director to lead its quick and exponential growth. Today, Vivid Economics is internationally recognised for ‘putting economics to good use’ in tackling some of the world’s greatest challenges. With more than 120 employees and offices in London, Amsterdam and Washington DC, we offer global strategic economics consultancy spanning public policy and support for commercial decision making for our clients around the world. Our mission-driven work spans a wide range of sectors and themes, with global reach, and we pride ourselves on the depth of our expertise, the rigor of our analytic tools, and the flexibility of our approach to making change happen.
