ABSTRACT
The essence of the environmental policy of the state is taking care of the environment as well as its creation and protection. The role of environmental policy instruments is to influence those who harm the environment and affect their environmental behaviour so the goals of environmental protection would be achieved. It is also necessary to be aware of the costs associated with the protection and prevention of environmental degradation. The aim of this paper is to evaluate the possibility of environmental protection and its current state in Slovakia using economic instruments (financial - economic instruments) and evaluate the development of costs of environmental protection and revenues from environmental protection in selected categories of economic subjects.

Keywords: economic instruments, environmental protection, quality of environment, costs, revenues
