Green Technology: An Emerging Perspective for Sustainable Development
Green Technology a recent breakthrough in the world of technology has changed the dynamics of business world by formulating new tenets of managing operations. Green technologies play an important role in the growth and development of a nation. Green technology, also known as clean technology, refers to the development and extension of processes, practices, and applications that improve or replace the existing technologies facilitating society to meet their own needs while substantially decreasing the impact of human on the planet, and reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities. In recent years tremendous research efforts have been devoted toward finding innovative and effective ways to develop important technologies, while ensuring that the processes are ‘green’. The drive toward ‘green’ or sustainable processes arises from several aspects not only scientifically, but rather due to the need to establish a better quality of life, improves human health, and prevents damage to the environment. The present study would throw some light on different perspectives of green technology in sectors like manufacturing, services, marketing, operations, electronics, computer science, energy, agriculture, waste management and economics and contains recent advancements made towards sustainable development in the field of Green marketing, bioenergy, nanotechnology, green chemistry, degraded land reclamation. Also, the study would offer useful insights for a large and broad readership, including practioners, researchers, scientists, academicians and readers from diverse backgrounds across various fields such as management, computer science, electronics, nanotechnology, chemistry, agriculture, environmental science, water engineering, waste management and energy and practioners in the area of green technologies.
