Oleksandr Chaikin

Abstract

Modern conditions of the world economic globalization caused unification and universalization of ecological demands to the quality of agricultural production. Ecological certification can be used as an evidence of producers’ corporate responsibility towards consumers and the state. The purpose of the paper is to study the possibility of production’s ecological certifications for the implementation of corporative responsibility of the enterprise. The concept of corporate ecological responsibility of the company is rather developed. With the help of logical summarizing the determining criteria of environmentally responsible enterprise from the point of view of ecologically certificated production are defined. The correlation of corporative responsibility and ecologically certificated agricultural production is analyzed. We demonstrate the possibility of certification usage for achieving the valuable reference points of the ecologically responsible company.
