green-economyAccording to the definition Of the United Nations Environment Program, green economy is means production of goods compatible with nature and environment and reconstruction of trade and social infrastructure, So that in addition to higher profitability, reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases and resource extraction. The green economy can be defined as an economy or economic development based on sustainable development and awareness of the local economy (consistent with the canvas), which leads to an increase in human welfare and social equality. According to the above definition of the green economy, environmental risks and damage in the least amount possible. Also, green economy includes the green energy which its foundation is renewable energy. Hence, green economy tries to replace green energy with Fossil fuels and keeping energy for urgency time. There are a lot of options and easy ways to support green economy and the people decisions from different sectors can play a vital role in this regard. Carl Burkhart believes that a green economy should be the six traits including of renewable energy (Solar power, wind power and sea power), Green architecture, green transportation (Alternative fuel, companion programs, and electric vehicles), Water management, waste management and land management (Organic farming, rebuilding parks, preventing soil erosion). Based on Burkhart traits, Reducing the use of single-passenger vehicles, increased use of public transport, walk or use a bicycle, Given the scarcity of fresh water resources, reduce the excessive consumption of water during bathing or washing dishes, Collect rainwater for watering plants and planning time of washing clothes, reduce the use of plastic, Using the fertilizer of food waste, create a community with high efficiency of resource and etc. However, the developments of green economy need government help. The high costs of green energy, and in many cases, market failure related to environmental protection and Global warming due to Externality effects and high costs of research, Development and marketing for green energy and products derived from it makes factories and companies less willing to invest in this area and therefore requires government involvement and support is felt in the green economy.
