The Green Pages Directory for Environmental Technology is an online information resource that lists international businesses and organizations that supply products and services which can remedy environmental problems – for example, any aspect of water treatment, air pollution, waste handling & recycling, and renewable energy. This free and self-supporting service connects consumers with 7000 suppliers from around 150 countries, presenting a forum to explore clean and sustainable technologies, to share knowledge and experience, and exchange best environmental practices. Over the past twelve years, Green Pages has been serving 10 million visitors with 125 million pages of free and up-to-date information.
Aims & Objectives
We envision a world where economic development is based on shared, efficient and sustainable use of natural resources – a world where people join forces across borders to alleviate and rectify the degradation of nature and climate caused by the greed and ignorance of the past.
The Green Pages supports market-based solutions to environmental problems by providing a platform to promote innovative, clean and efficient technologies. It helps companies compete in markets that were previously beyond their reach, benefiting especially small and enterprises from developing countries who gain exposure to a global audience. The directory enables contacts between suppliers and end users as well as potential business partners across the globe, assisting the acceleration and expansion of the Green ⁄ Cleantech business sector market share. The platform facilitates short-term sales of equipment and consulting contracts, and long-term technology transfers to local licensees and joint-ventures. It aims to deepen and broaden consumer’s ability to make a positive impact through their purchasing, by presenting readers with choices and alternatives.
Approach & Features
The site’s structure minimizes navigation so that users can quickly and directly advance to the information they desire, while encouraging them to explore additional content, through cross-references and context-sensitive menus. At the core of Green Pages’ sustainability concept is the continuous renewal of its content, ensuring that no clicks are wasted on obsolete data.
- A comprehensive index system ensures that you will find more than one way to locate suppliers with solutions that match your specific requirement. The listed products and services are grouped into main categories with sub-classifications.
- The country index alphabetically lists vendors and organisations by specified territories, featuring embedded meta-directories with links to corresponding, country-specific information resources.
- The search tool allows to locate products & services in combination with organization names & place of origin, on simple keyword or substring input.
- All listings include full contact details, links to website and location map, and online forms to request further information.
- The calendar of events is an agenda of environmental activities around the world, providing great flexibility to identify events by date, location and/or category (such as Conferences, Exhibitions, Meetings, Courses etc).
- Some 150 manuscripts have been selected of those received for publication in the Editorial Section. These papers outline practical and cost-effective approaches to environmental challenges. The authors are scientists, people in business and industry, and consumers with special expertise.
The world population is approaching 7 billion, when 200 years ago it was just 1 billion. Almost all of the population growth over the next 50 years is projected in the world’s poorest regions. This will inevitably lead to unprecedented social and environmental strains, and to an enormous increase in global migration.
The guiding principle of sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present – without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. In a world with almost one billion people hungry – where every five seconds a child dies from hunger-related causes – we are obviously not even meeting the needs of the present.
If left unabated, carbon emissions are projected to more than double by 2050, causing an acceleration in climate change, environmental degradation and biodiversity loss. Such conditions result in frequent severe weather, floods, disease and habitat destruction, adversely affecting economic growth, agricultural production, mortality and poverty – all of which will have devastating impacts on society, and indeed security.
Challenges & Opportunities
The sobering realization that economic development will die with the environment is fostering a growing consensus on the need for replacing unsustainable ways of the past with responsible practices for the future. Sustainability principles have moved from the fringes to the core of business strategies for achieving growth and lasting competitiveness. Corporate social responsibility values and triple bottom line criteria are increasingly becoming integral factors of corporate management.
Solutions are available right now to drastically reduce carbon emissions to the atmosphere:
- The cheapest and fastest way to halt global warming is to stop wasting energy, and to make things that use energy more efficient.
- Practicing the 3 R’s – Reduce, Recycle & Reuse – not only reduces emissions, it also saves money and increases economic viability.
- Renewable energy technologies, such as biomass, solar, hydro and wind systems, deliver clean power and fuels, cost-effectively.
- Clean technology is becoming a major economic driver, transforming current industries and creating hundreds of thousands new jobs globally.
Environmental technology is not a vertical marketplace – environmental protection challenges technology. Environmental engineering is truly interdisciplinary, ranging from chemistry and biology through physics to economics. In the traditional definition, it comprises water & wastewater treatment, air & noise pollution control, solid waste management and soil remediation. Green Pages also covers renewable energy & energy efficient technologies, as well as processes to develop cleaner production in industry and sustainable agriculture. It aims to increase awareness about available solutions across specialist disciplines. Air pollution, for example, cannot be addressed without looking at patterns of urban growth, energy, and transportation alternatives.
