Ecotechnology is an applied science that seeks to fulfill human needs while causing minimal ecological disrupution, by harnessing and subtly manipulating natural forces to leverage their beneficial effects. Ecotechnology integrates two complementary fields of study: the 'ecology of technics' and the 'technics of ecology,' requiring a substantial understanding of the structures and processes of ecosystems and societies. All sustainable engineering that can reduce damage to ecosystems, adopt ecology as a fundamental basis

  * control of impacts on ecosystems,
  * development and permanent improvement of cleaner processes and products,
  * eco-marketing,
  * introducing environmental management systems in the production and services sectors, and
  * development of activities for increasing awareness of the need for environmental protection and promotion of sustainable development by the general public
