The Pareto-optimality criterion is taken to be a criterion of efficiency. A point to notice about the criterion is that one doesn’t have to make any comparison between different agents in order to use it. If one is considering whether a new situation is more efficient than an old one, it is enough to know that someone prefers the new situation over the old and no one prefers the old to the new. This feature, however, makes the criterion unhelpful for actual decision making: as is clear in most environmental cases, practical decision making normally involves both winners and losers, not just winners.
