The modern concept of economics must be based on qualitative characteristics, ie. accepting the concept not just as wealth (resources), but wealth that restores (reproduces) the economy, ie. we are talking about the development of the individual, society and the natural environment, which forms the preconditions for the emergence of the concept of "ecological (green) economy" directly related to nature (environment). The environment satisfies human needs and makes human life possible. environment and the economy are interrelated, but from a theoretical point of view there are fundamental differences: the environment can do without the economy, but the economy is impossible without the environment. The green economy approach can be seen as an attempt to integrate most economic instruments related to sustainable development. In this way, the genesis of the green economy and its relationship to sustainable development can be traced.
