In the 21st century, the issue of sustainable development has taken on a key role in every field of the economy and business. The development of a green economy can play an important part in the sustainability of environmental protection, being an economic model that focuses on human health and the environment in parallel. Sustainable development involves protecting the environment and ensuring community well-being, having the world’s citizens living in ecological cleanliness and health. The growth of sustainable development and green economy contributes to overcoming the risks related to environmental pollution and the reduction of ecological problems. As such, green transition has been set as a goal by many countries today. Yet, it is a multi-faceted process that needs the broad-reaching involvement of numerous stakeholders in a focused network for collaboration. The main direction of
the green concept in the process of economic activity is to reduce the use of natural resources and protect the principles of ecological health and sustainable development. Much attention is given to the prevention of natural disasters and, in the best case, to their complete avoidance. The article covers the challenges faced by Georgia in its own process of green transition, and touches on issues related to green business development, air pollution, waste management, energy efficiency, and other sustainable development issues that provide an overview of aspects of the green transition.
