The principles of implementing public interest within the realm of environmental protection in Ukraine and the EU member states have been analyzed. This analysis draws significantly from Poland’s legislative frameworks and scholarly contributions. The premise of the analysis is anchored in the recognition of the paramount importance of shaping social and environmental interests (public interests), the absence of which hampers the efficient implementation of contemporary environmental policies. Fundamental premise of this analysis underscores for a harmonious interrelation between society’s environmental and economic interests. This encompasses the integration of social and private ecological interests, which should be coupled with the assurance of appropriate protection for upholding human rights, ensuring a secure natural environment for the present and future generations. Thus, this article emphasizes on the necessity of devising an efficient mechanism for actualizing public environmental interests. This entails bestowing the relevant competence upon distinct State authorities to address matters within this domain. Importantly, this should be executed while upholding the safeguards of State sovereignty and adhering to the defined tenets of State environmental policy.
