Summary/Abstract: The article deals with theoretical and methodological frameworks, practical recommendations regarding the potential involvement of "green” economics in the formation of “growth points” and “economic development areas” at the local and regional levels, strategic priorities comprehensive reforms at the regional level related to development of “green” economics are reasonable. The paper aims to highlight the various forms of “green” economics at local and regional levels, determine the scope of cleaner production in the field, explore the strategic priorities of reforming the regional economics based on sustainable development, the possibilities of involvement of potential “green” economics as the basis of improving competitiveness. This paper applies a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to determine the potential for project of “green” economics implementation as an integral part of programs at the regional level. Also is being used general scientific methods: the method of theoretical generalization, historical and logical methods, the method of analysis and synthesis (to determine strategic priorities involvement of the Ukrainian regions’ “green” economics potential as the basis for the formation of “growth points” and “economic development areas” at the regional level), the method of structural and statistical analysis (to identify the specifics of the “green” economics in the disposal of solid wastes and the development of alternative energy), the classification method and empirical methods (description, comparison).
