  • INTRODUCTION
    Incessantly increasing world population, rapid industrialization and technological advancements leading to innovative products are some of the salient features of the 21st century world. Last few decades have been a witness to unprecedented growth in the field of science and technology. But all the irresponsible human activities have taken a toll on the environment of the earth. The fragile ecological balance of Earth has been disturbed to an extent that has resulted in global warming, dramatic climatic variations across the world and the melting of polar ice caps. The present situation has made the marketers think and come up with a range of products that can satisfy customer needs while balancing the environmental issues. This has resulted in the birth of a new kind of marketing called Green marketing.
  • GREEN MARKETING DEFINED
    According to the American Marketing Association, “Green Marketing is the marketing of products that are presumed to be environmentally safe”.
    According to Oxford Dictionary of Business & Management, “Green marketing implies marketing products that benefit the environment”.
    Green or Environmental Marketing consists of all activities designed to generate and facilitate any exchanges intended to satisfy human needs or wants, such that the satisfaction of these needs and wants occurs, with minimal detrimental impact on the natural environment. [

    In order to ensure continued existence of human race on this planet, the marketers as well as consumers will have to assume a more responsible attitude towards the natural forces that support life on earth. It is time for manufacturers and marketers to become more responsible and accountable for their actions and devise ways to ensure sustainable growth. The legacy of the current generation’s industrial activities should be to hand over a surviving and thriving Mother Earth rather than passing on a dying planet in the hands of our future generations. The focus should be on giving back whatever we have taken away from this planet.
