Achieving the principles of sustainable development, refusing to achieve high rates of economic growth at the expense of future generations, stopping the processes of depletion of natural resources are possible only through the implementation of effective innovative policies based on greening. Value/originality. Environmental innovations should be aimed at solving tasks related to reducing the consumption of resources, controlling harmful effects on the environment, increasing the production of ecological products, reducing the costs of eliminating destructive effects of production activities. Such innovations will lead to a significant reduction in the negative impact of the economic activities of enterprises on the environment and will increase the efficiency of the use of resources, energy and materials. In addition, the ability to ensure the implementation of the waste management process will increase, which will contribute to the sustainable development of the enterprise in the long term.
