The aim of this paper is to present the assumptions behind the concept of macroeconomic analysis of management efficiency in the context of ecosystem services. Economic theory has long appreciated the significance of the flow of environmental goods, which is at the core of all theories and models of environmental economics. In fact, only full acknowledgement of the importance of ecosystem services for management processes aimed at achieving sustainable development and knowledge-based economy will enable one to verify the approach to the problems of economic efficiency, making it possible to formulate recommendations for increasing this efficiency. Deeper and more complete analysis and evaluation of management efficiency can be performed as a result of the valorisation of natural processes, which underpin the services provided by the environment.
