Air pollution as an undeniable fact is growing with the development and economic growth and impedes irreparable outcomes on living environment, workplaces as well as ecosystem. Direct and indirect costs of air pollution especially from social health cost act as a barrier to economic breed and thereby country development. Beside presented solutions and governmental and also policy makers role in legislation and enforcement of environmental requirements and laws in local, national, regional and international level it is notable that modern technologies role in air pollution prevention and control is very important. These technologies not only are useful in removal and reduction of pollutant emissions, particulates and smog, but also they have significant role in energy saving and therefore in productivity and development of a country. In this study we have briefly mention the role of those in green management of an organization. It is recommended that using these technologies beside the presented solutions of governmental, management, organizational and individual level can result in improvement on emission control, social health cost, welfare, economic growth and natural conservation which are key elements of a country development.
