The valuation of environmental assets is a key current issue in the analysis of environmental assetsfrom an economic viewpoint. Economic assessment often involves the assessment of communityvalues for environmental protection (public benefits) and any complementary or offsetting changes toproduction (net private benefits). Whilst the majority of studies focus on final demand aspects ofenvironmental values (e.g. recreational use, existence and amenity values from better environmentalprotection) there is a need to consider any associated impacts on production of economiccommodities. The shadow prices and elasticity of production with respect to environmental inputs is ofinterest in determining efficient public procurement mechanisms for environmental improvements. Inparticular, distributional aspects of the use of environmental assets by agricultural enterprises mayhave implications for the efficiency of different approaches to environmental benefit procurement. Weuse production data from rangelands beef enterprises in Australia and nonparametric conditionalquantiles to show that the efficiency of enterprises may be associated with the efficiency of utilisationof environmental inputs and thus may indicate that environmental procurement mechanisms may bebenefiting relatively inefficient producers.
