The study addresses the issue of changes in the financing of environmental protection in Poland in 1997–2011. An evaluation of the spendings on certain types of fixed assets in the protection of the environment was made. The author indicated the extent of state participation in expenditures for environmental protection and the use of other sources of funding, such as the investor’s own funds or grants from environmental funds. It was found out that in 1999–2002 there was a significant decline in investments in environmental protection, which was mainly due to the worsening of the economic situation of many companies during this period. Since 2004, there is a slow but steady growth of expenditures on environmental protection, which has been associated with the use of funds for investment projects financed with EU funds.
