The aim of this paper is to identify and assess the main problems with economisation of the environmental policy in Poland. The fi rst part presents the signifi cance of economisation in setting the environmental policy objectives, the second part indicates the problems with economising the activities pursued by the entities which create and supervise the policy, and the third part points to the problems with economising the policy instruments. The Polish environmental policy was oriented towards using aid from the European Union to the maximum possible extent. After 2020, this source of funding will play a minor role. In order to economise the environmental policy, the environmental law needs to be amended and the role of economic and market instruments of this policy must increase.
