- The importance of environmental entrepreneurship development is determined by the search for new ways of economic evolvement in the face of increasing economic damage from pollution and depletion of the natural environment. The essence of entrepreneurship in economic science is widely disclosed, but the theory of environmental entrepreneurship is at the nascent stage. The paper analyzes the essence of environmental entrepreneurship, the theoretical prerequisites for its emergence. It is shown that theoretical approaches to the essence and origin of environmental entrepreneurship are interrelated and can be used in various combinations. The article highlights one of the most important trends in the development of environmental entrepreneurship - organic agricultural production. The concept and principles of organic agriculture in the interpretation of international organizations such as the Research Institute for Organic Agriculture (FiBL) and the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM) are studied. It is shown that the demand for organic products is growing every year throughout the world and Russia has great prospects in the development of the organic market, but today it is almost in its infancy. The article analyzes the reasons that restrain the development of organic products market such as non-compliance with the requirements of international certification, greenwashing and others. Directions for the development of organic agriculture in Russia are highlighted such as the improvement of legislation to regulate organic products market and mechanisms of preferences for producers.
