Abstract :

Over the last few years, a wide range of building materials, systems, and technologies have been produced around the world, and concern about the field’s sustainability challenges has been mandatory. Green technology refers to a variety of new and resourceful advancements in creating environmentally-friendly transforms in daily life. It has been prepared as well as used in such a way that natural resources along with the surroundings are protected. It is intended to be an optional source of technology that lowers the need for fossil fuels and causes not as much of damage to human, animal, in addition to plant health, as well as to the environment. The use of green technology is intended to diminish waste and pollution. Environmental technologies as well as clean technology are other terms for it. There have been studies on innovation that assumes environmentally friendly properties of materials, systems, and technologies; nevertheless, nothing has been said about the social aspects of sustainability. It is important to remember that sustainability encompasses not just environmental, but in addition financial and societal dimensions, the latter of which has direct repercussions for society’s well-being. Because worldwide concerns of environmental deterioration have compelled our society to take action, efforts aimed at this goal should be based on historical and cultural values, as well as the interaction between humans and nature to rethink development and evolve the concept of long-term sustainability. New ecologically friendly technologies are, without a doubt, critical to achieving long-term development. The purpose of this research is to emphasize the societal characteristics or features that contribute to environmental conservation through green technologies. The study is based on reviewing of secondary data sources like journals, articles, newspapers, social media, books, etc.
