Subject. The article discusses export opportunities of the Russian regions, including green entrepreneurship, in terms of sustainable development goals.
Objectives. We conduct the aggregate evaluation of the export potential of the Russian regions by indicator of export opportunities, including the description of the development of green business segments.
Methods. Integral analysis is the baseline methodology accounting for multiple parameters of the local export potential and green business development.
Results. We determined the highest export potential of green entrepreneurship in regions by commodity group. To perform the comprehensive analysis of the export potential for business segments of the green economy, we propose and assess the aggregated index, which provide for factual indicators of exported products and requirements for green business development.
Conclusions and Relevance. If the export potential of the green economy is evaluated by simply examining exports of the above sectors, the findings will not be very informative, because they will not unveil business opportunities of the green segment. To comprehensively analyze the export potential for development business segments of the green economy, it is necessary to assess the aggregate index providing for factual indicators of exported products and requirements for the green business development.
