In Nigeria, many established and establishing technological industries produce effluents that add to Global warming which have been on the increase continuously in the years back, conveying several undesired significances to Earth and human life. Forecasts propose that the significances will linger over the years to come. Among the solutions to assuage this problem is the adoption of green technologies. As a result, this paper examines the contribution of green technology to sustainable development of other countries and compare it with that of Nigeria. It also presents an avenue via which green technology can improve Nigeria’s sustainable development, and also examines Policy Requirements for its Development in Nigeria.
