The man-environment relationship indicates that pollution and deterioration of the environment have a social origin. Environment pollution has become a major global concern. Global society is facing the challenge of improving the quality of air, water, soil, environment and maintaining the ecological balance. The growth of industrialization, urbanization, modern agricultural development and energy generation has resulted in the indiscriminate exploitation of natural resources for fulfilling human desires and needs, which has contributed in disturbing the ecological balance on which the quality of our environment depends. In recent time, one of the major issues is the threat to human life from the progressive deterioration of the environment. Today we have environmental problems such as acid rain, ozone depletion, global warming, climate change, effects of pesticides and fertilizer, Solid waste, hazardous waste- Treatment & disposal. Roots of these problems are a lack of adequate awareness, knowledge, and understanding of our environment. Sustainable development emphasizes the use of natural resources and employing eco-friendly technology for production, processing, and operation in industries and making societies ready for environmental development and management.
