The research on situation with developing "green skills" in conditions of transition to "green economy" is analysed in this article. Kazakhstan like many other states has been going through transition to "green economy" since 2013. Economic reforms have made an impact on the system of environmental education. The authors of this research directed their efforts at revealing how people use "green skills" in such sectors as catering, car-service and waste management. The authors carried out sociological survey and observation in order to find out to what extent knowledge, skills, opinions, types of behaviour associated with "green skills" are spread among the respondents. Comparative analysis demonstrated that application of environment-friendly operating procedures at enterprises in official and non-official sector vary. Many employees perceive "green skills" as environmental friendliness and have no proper understanding of the role of "green skills".
