We have an opening for an economist in our Toronto office.
Impact Infrastructure was founded in April 2012 and has offices in New York, Toronto and San Francisco.

The team of professionals at Impact Infrastructure have played leadership roles in the economic analysis for all manner of buildings and infrastructure, as well as the creation of the Triple Bottom Line Cost Benefit Analysis (TBL-CBA), and Sustainable Return on Investment (S-ROI) analysis frameworks.
Impact Infrastructure’s Autocase software automates business case analysis for both green infrastructure and LEED building projects, with long term development pipeline to expand to other infrastructure sectors. The cloud-based solution uses standardized local data, best practice economic methodology, and design information to quantify the Financial, Social, and Environmental value of projects. Our analytics are used by infrastructure and buildings owners, as well as the architecture, engineering, consulting (AEC) market. This information can be used so that a diverse range of stakeholders can answer the most important question: “What’s in it for me?” Autocase’s benefits include reduced stakeholder pushback, quicker project approval, and the development of more sustainable and resilient communities.
