Abstract. To date, the American corporate management has fully understood that the neglect of ecological business aspects can merely provide temporary benefits. The "Green Strategy” is important not only for companies' image, but also for their robust margins in the long run. The principle "pollutant pays" is really applied in the U. S. environmental management practices. This article aims to analyse the " Green Strategy”implementation by American and foreign companies operating inside the U. S. territory. 

Keywords: USA, corporations, environmental protection, “green” economy, eco-management, energy conservation methods, state environmental policy
