Abstract

The purpose of presented study is to find out main issues of development of eco-innovation in the Baltic States and to outline the main directions for further research, where the tasks of study are: to clarify the concept and definition of eco-innovation; and to estimate the current situation regarding eco innovation’s development in the Baltic States. The research methods used, depending on the task: literature review, descriptive and inferential statistics, comparative method, as well as content analysis and systematization. European eco-innovation index (countries’ performance) shows that in general the Baltic States are lagging behind both other EU Member States and Baltic Sea Region countries. Although Estonia is the leader among Baltic States, Lithuania shows faster growth but Latvia lags behind.
