Research background: Despite the fact, that green growth is one of the main goals of the European Union, a sufficient attention is still not given to it in conditions of Slovakia. The green growth represents compliance of the need to protect environment with economic development of society. So far, a comprehensive survey has not been carried out in Slovakia, which would focus on the issue of green growth and sustainable development in enterprises in the Slovak wood-processing industry.
Purpose of the article: The aim of the presented paper is to identify key external and internal determinants preventing the implementation of green growth and sustainable development in enterprises in the Slovak wood-processing industry.
Methods: Current information on the research issue was obtained through an empirical survey in the form of a questionnaire. Subsequently, the results were processed descriptively and graphically.
Findings & Value added: The achieved results show that the key internal determinant preventing the implementation of green growth and sustainable development in enterprises in the Slovak wood processing industry is the orientation of production to the end of the production process in the context of environmental pollution. The enterprises consider insufficient state support to be the main external determinant.
Key words: green growth / indicators of green growth / wood-processing industry / Covid-19
