Abstract: This study explores the interrelations between environmental quality (atmospheric emissions) and the level of innovations in Ukraine and Poland. An in-depth analysis of the environmental conditions and atmospheric emissions shows that changes of environmental indicators are related to the development of innovation. The volume of polluting emissions is determined for both countries considering the achieved level of innovations. Within a paper, the category of innovation is quantified using: the number of innovation workers, the share of expenditures on research-and-development (R&D) in the GDP; the share of expenditures on R&D in the total cost, the educational level and the GDP growth pattern.

Keywords: innovations; environmental situation; innovation work indicators; innovation activities; Ukraine; Poland.
