what is green technology

Green or eco-technology includes sustainable or environmental technology and encompasses an ever-evolving set of methods, practices and materials, from energy generation techniques to non-toxic cleaning products. It takes into account the long and short-term impact of something on the environment. Green technology is, by definition, environmentally friendly and the future of green technology is currently looking bright, with global investment in different sectors such as energy, innovation and manufacturing increasing by almost 20% in the last few years.

Energy scarcity, global warming, pollution, growing urban populations, soil degradation, deforestation and other environmental issues are encouraging individuals, companies and countries to look to the future to see how adapting to greener technologies can help change the world. 

This type of technology is designed to have minimal impact on the environment, whether in the production process, in the use of the product or in the disposal of the product. There are many different types of green technology, from solar panels to electric cars.

The benefits of green technology are clear, they include

Green technology is important to protect our environment. Green technology can help reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, which can help reduce pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.

Green technology can help save money in the long run. For example, solar panels can provide a cost-effective way to generate electricity and electric cars can save on fuel costs.

Green technology can create jobs in the green technology industry that can help stimulate the economy.

How is Green Technology Changing the World?

Green technology is one of the hottest topics in the world right now. Everyone is looking for ways to be more environmentally friendly and reduce their carbon footprint. Green technology offers many solutions to these problems.

Green technology is changing the way we power our homes and businesses. Solar panels and wind turbines are becoming more and more common. These renewable energy sources are becoming much cleaner and also more affordable than fossil fuels.

Green technology is also changing the way we get around. Electric cars are becoming more popular and many cities are investing in more environmentally friendly public transportation options.

Green technology is transforming manufacturing. Industry 4.0 leverages all 3 pillars of sustainability by reducing costs, creating jobs and reducing the environmental impact of production.  This is perhaps the least known aspect of how green technology is changing our world!

As green technology continues to evolve, it is clear that it is changing the world for the better. We are finding more and more ways to be environmentally friendly and it is making a huge difference.

Such sustainable scenarios are being worked on, driven by transformative and innovative technologies. The future survival of the Earth will be critical. For the planet to sustain itself, it needs to reach the global goal of net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

"We are at a critical juncture where we can change the course of our collective future," says Dr. Steve Howard, Temasek's vice president of sustainability, who holds a PhD in ecophysiology and environmental physics based on research in Kenya.
