Pochopień, J. (2022) “Potential for implementation of the development of integration concepts economics and ecology in the economic activity of social systems”, Scientific Journal of Bielsko-Biala School of Finance and Law. Bielsko-Biała, PL, 26(4), pp. 96–102. doi: 10.19192/wsfip.sj4.2022.15.


The irresponsible attitude of mankind to the use of natural resources led to a violation of the ecological balance and encouraged socially responsible members of society to unite in various parties and movements. Recognition of ecology as the basic paradigm of society's existence prompted manufacturers to introduce new principles of both business management and interaction with consumers. Fashion for conscious consumption encourages the use of energy-saving technologies, reduction of emissions and substances harmful to the soil in agricultural production, use of raw materials and materials of non-animal origin, etc. Under such conditions, the integration of economy and ecology was determined, the basis of which was the implementation of economic processes with minimal impact on the natural environment. The resource-based type of economy, characteristic of economically underdeveloped countries, serves as the basis of aggressive state policy, contributes to the imbalance not only of the national, but also of the world economy, and is destructive from the point of view of the future development of mankind. The agricultural sector of the economy is not only considered one of the most promising, but also belongs to a number of ecologically dangerous industries. This is due to the wide use of various environmentally hazardous chemicals in the process of agricultural production; use of complex agricultural machinery, as well as fuel and lubricants. An alternative to environmentally harmful agricultural production is ecological (organic) farming, in which the use of synthetic combined fertilizers, pesticides, growth regulators, and food additives for animal feed is prohibited or largely limited. The guiding principle for organic farming is the use of materials and technologies that improve the ecological balance in natural systems and contribute to the creation of sustainable and balanced agroecosystems. Animal husbandry, as a source of greenhouse gases, also has a negative impact on the environment. Eco-activists call for abandoning animal food and replacing animal proteins with vegetable ones. To improve the ecological balance, agricultural production should use the minimum amount of external resources, close nutrient cycles, reduce negative emissions into the external environment in the form of waste and greenhouse gas emissions, and also process or use agricultural waste.
