Economic and legal measures for ensuring the economy greening in post-pandemic period

Keywords: greening, green economy, environmental issues, post-pandemic period, greening tools, Kendall methodology.


The purpose of the study was to develop economic and legal measures to create a green economy model by assessing the effectiveness of greening tools. To achieve the goal it was necessary to solve several problems. Firstly, to evaluate the effectiveness of greening tools using expert analysis techniques. Secondly, to develop measures to ensure the economy greening through the use of the most effective greening tools. Theoretical basis. The economy greening is extremely important, especially in the post-pandemic period - a period of intensive economic recovery, which might contribute to the strengthening of environmental problems. Accordingly, the study aims to identify the most effective tools for greening to develop measures for the ecologigaly healthy economic recovery in the post-pandemic period. Scientific novelty. The effectiveness of greening tools was evaluated and several economic and legal measures were developed, which will contribute to the economy greening intensification. Conclusions. The study proposed to intensify the economy greening by using the most effective greening tools whose effectiveness was assessed by using expert analysis. The most effective greening tools were identified: environmental taxes, quotas, environmental funds, environmental audit, and environmental certification. Based on the results of the study, several economic and legal measures for economy greening in the post-pandemic period were developed.
