Relevance. Nowadays, the indisputable fact is the need to move to a new path of development, ensuring a balanced economy and ecology, which will prevent the destruction of civilization under the influence of an environmental crisis. This path is determined by the concept of sustainable development, which, as it is believed, can simultaneously solve two tasks: economic growth and nature conservation. However, twenty-six years on from the date of the Rio Conference (1992), there are no positive estimates regarding the implementation of the concept.
Purpose of the work is to determine the most likely areas of activity that contribute to the transition to a new path of development.
Results of the study. This paper clarifies the concept of sustainable development, provides the author’s definition, which focuses on the condition of maintaining the regulatory functions of ecosystems and the need to transform the consciousness of society in terms of its environmentalization. Some conceptual approaches and conditions for the implementation of a sustainable development model at the state level are displayed in a schematic form, reflecting the need to comply with environmental restrictions, population planning, limiting needs, environmental technology, improving the legal framework for sustainable development, etc. The target orientation of the subsystems of the ecological-economic system at the regional level is justified in relation to enterprises mastering the resources of the subsoil and the ecological-economic system itself, the expediency of combining the economic and social subsystems into a single socio-economic subsystem, as well as the requirement of consistency of man-induced load with the ecological technological intensity of the territory and civility for natural resource use.
Conclusions. The substantiated conditions for the transition to a new ecological and economic model of development at the level of public administration determine the main areas of activity that allow us to bring closer the moment of implementing the concept of sustainable development.

Keywords: concept, sustainable development, implementation, areas of activities, equation.
