    The energy and ecological resources of our planet are limited. Water reserve, minerals and other resources are running out and deteriorating. A huge amount of scientific research suggests numbers and statistics of what the excessive, technologically irrational, inappropriate, and irresponsible expenditure of natural resources leads to, by both ordinary citizens, and large and small agricultural, industrial, and other enterprises (Kapitonov, 2018;Kapitonov et al., 2018). Air pollution, the use of hectares of land for storage of industrial and civil waste, unreasonable deforestation and much more – all this leads planet Earth to exhaustion and decay.

    Articles of this issue are aimed at showing a new vector of development of various kinds of large and small enterprises, primarily agronomic ones, in the field of optimizing their work in the economic, energy, and environmental aspects. To present the relationship of resource conservation factors and economic development. Communication of enterprises and scientific institutions in the process of forming a low-carbon economy. Find ways to transform global energy, i.e. transition from fossil fuels to other energy sources. These studies are relevant, as they try to form a structure for the sustainable development of energy and environmental safety of small and medium-sized agricultural enterprises, and also contribute to improving the environmental and, as a consequence, the economic situation in the world (Silagadze, 2019).

    The agro-industrial complex can become an important source of energy, which not only does not deplete land and other resources, but also saves time on transportation, processing, and marketing. The articles of this issue do not present the environmental responsibility of the enterprise in the light that for the sake of this responsibility they should bear economic damage, but research is looking for a way and concept of how to make the enterprise not only environmentally friendly and efficient, but also be financially successful. Ways to achieve this are presented in visual form through tables, mathematical calculations, in the form of figures and diagrams. The authors used various theoretical and analytical research methods (Pylypenko, 2019).

    Ecological and economic prerogatives of using alternative forms of energy in the light of attracting investors are demonstrated, the formation of the so-called tax shield for calculating the level of assets, creating a positive balance of payments, insurance against agricultural risks, and agricultural insurance of forward purchases. Research highlights the methodology for planning small and medium agribusiness. The articles discuss the creation of an enterprise energy efficiency model and its transition to innovative forms of production based on energy conservation (Abramov et al., 2018). These studies raise the problems of not only the formation of an effective agribusiness building, but also one of the most serious issues in the mining industry – acid artificial waters.

    Innovations in the environmental and energy-saving areas of enterprises are shown as the main vectors for the transition to economic development of business and as the basis for the harmonious development of the industry, the resource potential of agricultural production is displayed, which determines the dynamics of the level of income of farmers and participants in the development of large and small enterprises.
