ABSTRACT. The article is dedicated to a problem of establishment and development of ecological entrepreneurship in Ukraine. The authors pay attention to the methodological basis of ecological entrepreneurship, define the category “ecological entrepreneurship”, and address the specific features of this phenomenon. The main problems of the agricultural sector of Ukraine as a prospect for ecological entrepreneurship development are outlined in the paper: the destruction of soils, lack of land cultivation, pollution and more.  An important element of ecological entrepreneurship development is production ecologization, which will be implemented as a component within the framework of conception of sustainable development. Eco-destruction processes, which prevent progress of ecological entrepreneurship in Ukraine, are analyzed.
