dc.description.abstract Sustainable Development has emerged as the most viable and practical model for human activity, that ensures the protection as well as progress of the three main stakeholders i.e., the economy, the ecology and the community and green technology is at the fore-front of this global movement towards “Sustainable Development”. It is particularly relevant in the case of the Kingdom of Bahrain. As the need for green products and services rise, partly mandated by governmental regulations, more and more entrepreneurs will jump into the green technology bandwagon and a positive cycle of new and more efficient green products will be created. Nowadays it is not just IT majors that are pumping in millions of dollars to focus on green technologies and environmental conservation, but also retailers and investment bankers have pooled resources to make their contribution. The main goal of this research is to understand the status and level of effectiveness of the implementation of Green Technology among the selected consultancy companies in the Kingdom of Bahrain. The study also uncovers the difference in perception about the status and the actual effectiveness in the implementation. The study was conducted using surveys questionnaires and personal interviews, with a respondents group selected from eight different organizations that are actively involved in Green Technology implementation in the Kingdom of Bahrain. The results showed that whilst respondents attached a high level of importance to the status of Green Technology, the level of effectiveness was gauged to be not very effective. Several problems and challenges were brought forth which are hampering the process of effective implementation of Green technology projects. The study confirmed the hypothesis that there was very less difference in the perception amongst the respondents pertaining to status and level and effectiveness of implementation of Green Technology among the selected companies in the Kingdom of Bahrain. The study put forward details of some of the recommendations made by the respondents, which included a need for greater governmental support, investment in indigenous research and development capabilities, creating public awareness and improving access to newer technologies in the field of Green technology. en_US
