Improving energy efficiency and building a low-emission economy based on example of Lesser Poland Voivodeship

1 Introduction The correlation between the state of the natural environment and socioeconomic development was first observed in the sixties of the past century. It was found that the activities carried out at the time resulted in environmental degradation and translated into the weak state of the economy and affected the prospects for its development. The idea of “sustainable development” appeared for the first time in 1980. It was used in a document entitled “World Conservation Strategy – Living Resource Conservation for Sustainable Development”, drawn up by

product (GDP) growth. The study found that, under the low growth regime, the oil price has a predictive content for real GDP growth. Besides, it is also found that the higher growth regime will be long lived compared to the low growth regime. Bayat et al. [2017, p. 823] examined whether energy consumption is an important factor for economic growth in Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa (BRICS) countries or not. To do so, the study applied panel data analysis considering the period from 1990 to 2013 and found that conservation hypothesis in Russia, feedback
