Abstract

In this paper the results of eco-innovation assessment were analyzed. Eco-innovations are consid-ered as a solutions to minimize the negative impact on the environment to a greater degree than their previous counterparts. For this reason, the eco-innovations include in particular: pollution prevention, pollution control, cleaning technology, cleaner technology, environmentally improved products, loop closing, environmental management systems, waste management, environmental optimisation of pro-duction chain, system innovation. The big number of different indicators makes the decision-making in strategic management is difficult but needed. The own researches aimed at identification of leading trends in eco-innovation assessment and interest revealed by world companies. The own literature study on the results generated after application of eco-innovation indicators delivers significant knowledge on the international research trends. The subject of this work are 18 scientific papers pub-lished after the successful realization of eco-innovation projects. They have been analyzed in the con-text of 34 key findings. Among the identified and included into the analysis of criterion on assessment of interest in eco-innovations are: technological eco-innovations, management/system eco-innovation, process eco-innovation, external stakeholders role in supporting eco-innovation, competitive ad-vantage as a benefit from eco-innovations. The results of researches realized in this paper show that eco-innovative technologies have the biggest importance for the world companies. Thus the present trends show increasing role of technological solutions when comparing with management/system and process solutions.
