The effectiveness of the distribution of financial resources that affect environmental sustainability through public financing has recently become of particular relevance. The availability of credit financing for business remains one of the most significant factors affecting the business environment, the development of entrepreneurship and the economy as a whole. The government is taking steps to reduce risks, including environmental risks, and to ensure that property rights are protected from the consequences of adverse events by promoting public-private partnerships, which have proven to be a successful way for businesses and the state to interact in Kazakhstan.
