The paper aims to emphasize certain methods and modern instruments used for quantifying the economic impact of setting-up either pollution control or environment protection related social objectives, in the context of strategic management and project management processes carried out within economic organizations. The paper also underlines that setting-up social objectives in the field of pollution control and environment protection may lead to short-run tangible economic benefits for organizations, in addition to already known long-run benefits for society, consisting in quality improvements of the social life’s parameters.
