Abstract. The paper proves the need of using indicators for the growth quality estimation. The authors compare the energy productivity and intensity of CO2 emissions in Russia and other countries (including countries with the similar climatic conditions). The results demonstrate that in 2011 Russia fell behind the developed countries and the world economy as far as the energy productivity is concerned. The intensity of CO2 emissions in Russia and China exceeds all the considered countries and the world level. The energy productivity and economy eco-intensity in Russian regions as for the main kinds of environmental pressure (pollutants emissions, sewage water discharges and waste generations) were estimated. According to the article, the comparative analysis of the indicators shows significant interregional differences in the growth quality. In 2010 more than 30 % of Russian regions were characterized by low efficiency of energy productivity in economy. On the other hand, the research of comparative dynamics of energy productivity indicator demonstrates the increase of the efficiency of using energy resources in 47 regions during 2007–2010. The authors conclude that the production of energy was characterized by the highest eco-intensity of air pollutions and the mining was characterized by the highest eco-intensity of waste generation. It allows defining the directions of social and economic development in regions and making decisions relative to realization of investment projects.

Key words: region, economic development, ecological pressure, eco-intensity of economy, energy productivity.
