    Science. Business. Society., Vol. 6 (2021), Issue 2, pg(s) 54-57

    Mankind faces a number of challenges in the 21st century. Many of them are related to the achievement of the goals and ideas set in the concept of sustainable development of modern UN society. The bio-sector, which is developing within the borders of the Bulgarian economy, has undergone rapid development in the last few years. Many factors have influenced this process, the most sign ificant of which are: increased demand for organic products in international markets, high levels of public support for this type of production and the availability of favorable climatic conditions for their development. Innovation is the main tool for achieving competitiveness and economic growth at all levels – enterprise, industry, region or country. They are the fundamental means of improving people’s quality of life. The purpose of this report is to present the results of a survey conducted among bio-enterprises in the regions of Bulgaria and to show that the green innovation in the bio-sectors is the foundation for regional economic, social and environmental prosperity. The results of the study summarize the main directions for achieving regionally balanced sustainable development.

    Growing environmental problems and the uneven distribution of wealth around the world raised questions more than forty years ago about how to achieve sustainability. The United Nations Commission on the Environment and Development (WCED), formed in the autumn of 1983 and chaired by Gru Harlem Bruntland, draws accurate and concrete conclusions using full information from all over the world on the state of the planet and develops a report called “Our Common Future”. Along with all the conclusions and recommendations, the Bruntland report introduces the concept of “sustainable development” which reads: Sustainable is a development that achieves the vital needs of the current generation without being deprived of it (ie without The leading aspect in this definition is the idea of reconciling the satisfaction of human needs with the limited resources, as well as the equality between the present and the future generations.

The conference in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) in 1992 played a crucial role in affirming the concept of sustainable development in modern society. combining the harmonious interaction between economic prosperity, social justice and a preserved environment. The purpose of this report is to present the results of a study on the degree of maturity of management in bio-sector enterprises to adopt global sustainable development goals and link them to their business practices.The results of the present study confirm the thesis that the modification of the current socio-economic model of development there is no alternative. The main non-reproducible energy and raw materials sources are about to run out in the foreseeable future.
