A balanced (knowledge-nature) imperative to the formation of sustainable economic development is proposed. It connects into a coherent whole the following issues: the financial and economic component of the resource-saving production and the environment in which set limits on the use of natural resources and raw materials and harmful externalities, based on the concept of sustainable development. Based on the hypothesis that the increase in consumption of natural resources and raw materials can be decomposed into two components, as well as taking into account that each type of pollutant associated with specific types of use of natural resources and raw materials, formed a model of sustainable economic development (model Karpinsky-Bozhko) which allows determining its achievements with the economic and innovative products. According to the proposed model the division of scientific and technical progress onto the following kinds: the 1st kind (effect on the competitiveness of products by improving the efficiency of labour) and the 2nd kind (effect on the competitiveness of products through a resource saving) that allows assessing the role of STP from the perspective of sustainable economic development. Isolate the impact of state assets (in Ukraine at the beginning of 2015 the degree of wear up to 80 %) on the investment attractiveness of privatized objects and financial flows from this that it would be possible to characterize the implementation of measures for sustainable economic development. We prove the need to expand the replacement of imported energy carriers for domestic coal (western region of Ukraine) and integrating with the implications for sustainable development of the economy prompted to create the Research Institute of Social, financial and economic problems of functioning and development of the Lviv-Volyn coal basin. It was noted that sustainable economic development is only possible on the basis of systematic attention to science and active implementation of its results with adequate funding (more than 1 % of GDP), but in Ukraine in recent years, total spending on science make 0.7-0.8 % of GDP, which indicates more about the level of compliance of Ukrainian science of cognitive function.
