This Special Issue of Economies aims to highlight contemporary research into business ecosystems in the environmental goods and services sector (EGSS). The importance of this economic sector has grown steadily since the beginning of the 20th century as environmental problems have become social and economic problems. The importance of EGSS became clear when it was discovered that there is no possibility to maintain the rest of the economy if there is no sustainable development based on EGSS. This conclusion brings many challenges due to the highly turbulent business environment, achieving, shaping, and above all, maintaining the competitiveness of enterprises involved in the business ecosystems in EGSS. Relations between business entities in EGSS create inter-organizational networks based on the complexity of relationships, green supply chains, responsibility, environmental protection, green job creation, and adaptation time to changing legal regulations, green taxes and fees, and, finally, business ecosystem transformations. Their role in these networks is still being researched because, in EGSS, there are different management directions (environmental management and environment management) and strategies that relate to different areas of economic activity – environment protection and resource management. Economies is inviting researchers and academicians to submit their work to a Special Issue dedicated to “Business Ecosystems in the Environmental Goods and Services Sector”. Some potential topics include transformations towards sustainable development, green jobs and green labor market, sustainable development, green innovations related to EGSS development, business ecosystem models, and environmental economy or green economy. The insights gained will be useful for students, practitioners, and policymakers.
