“Added Value Analyses” capture the quantification of the economic significance of companies, organizations and industries on an international and national level. The goal here is to measure the contribution of these actors to the economic variables of growth, employment and foreign trade.
In the context of our calculations, we extend these perspectives to include ecological and social dimensions (macroeconomic sustainability monitoring). It is thus possible to compare benchmarks of companies and organizations with entire industries based on official data. Another research focus is the analysis of the economic significance of research and development.
