Oiconomy Pricing - Real price of a stone kitchen countertop
Using the Oiconomy Pricing method, this case study assessed the negative hidden costs and positive costs of 1m2 of stone kitchen countertop. Hidden costs show what impact the product has on planet, people and prosperity that are currently not reflected in the prices charged for the goods along the value chain. Negative hidden costs are based on prevention as they calculate the cost necessary to eliminate all the negative impact.
