Sustainable Technology in Ghana

In few words what is sustainable? It simply means to be able to maintain at a certain rate or level.

And technology on the other hands means, machinery and equipment developed from application of scientific knowledge.

Therefore, sustainable technology refers, to an umbrella term that describes innovation that considers natural resources and fosters economic and social development. The goal of these technology is to drastically reduce environmental and ecological risks and to create a sustainable product.

Sustainability in technology has already made it way into the public use and innovation. Common examples of sustainable technology and innovations include:

1.     Public and electric transport

2.     LED light technology

3.     Solar power

4.     Carbon capture and storage technologies and

5.     Self-sufficient and LEED buildings and construction methods.

To begin with, why is sustainable technology good for business, sustainable technology has the potential to transform how businesses and public systems do work.

Sustainable technology aims to minimize any negative social and environmental impacts, which is good for business’s bottom line, and its reputation.

Every business owner wants to make a difference and remain compliant with environmental and social standards. By implementing sustainable innovations, companies can stay competitive and help the environment.

First of all, sustainable technology reduce risk and improve project outcome.

One advantage of sustainable technology is that it helps your business reduce risk. When you utilize renewable and biodegradable materials, you’re indirectly protecting the ecosystem-and your business-from the negative effects of climate change.

Also, it improves your bottom line.

With sustainable technology in your business, you can make use of resources effectively. This goes a long way in boosting your bottom line, which helps you spend less and gain more.

One may ask, what are the effects of technology on sustainability, through technology, waste materials are recycled and produce products like animal feeds. Dirty water is recycled and ends up being used by humans. These recycling acts save money, preserve natural resources, and avoid environmental damages. Through these effects innovations in tracking, testing and conserving our resources help avoid unnecessary waste and over-production.

The integration of technology in agriculture is shaping a sustainable future, with AI, machine learning, drones, precision agriculture, and vertical farming at its core. This innovation practice improve efficiency, minimize waste, and optimize resource use.

Through sustainable technology, agriculture has broad range of disciplines and devices that improve agriculture output. That include vehicles, robots, computers and mobile devices.

To conclude, sustainable technology has made man to utilize more efficient, reducing the demand for energy and accompanying environmental impact, therefore I would like to say the sustainable technology is not a luxury but a necessity.
