Abstract: This bachelor thesis focuses on an analysis of the impact of economic growth on the environment. The first part shortly introduces the history of macroeconomic models incorporating environmental constraints to analyse, then, assumptions, behaviour and implications of the three pre-selected models. The following section deals with the theory of the Environmental Kuznets Curve and offers the assessment of current explanations, empirics and possible shortcomings. The final part connects the findings of previous chapters in order to construct computer simulations whose goal is to predict the development of the environment in the given model.
