This article presents findings from a comprehensive study conducted to assess the awareness levels, attitudes, and practices related to green technology and sustainability in Coimbatore City. Coimbatore, known for its industrial and urban landscape, faces environmental challenges that necessitate proactive measures towards sustainable development. Through surveys, interviews, and focus group discussions, data were collected from residents, businesses, educational institutions, and government stakeholders to gauge the understanding and engagement with green technology and sustainable practices. The study revealed varying levels of awareness across different demographic groups and geographic areas within the city. While there was a general recognition of the importance of environmental conservation and sustainable development, significant gaps were identified in knowledge about available green technologies and practical steps towards sustainability. Factors such as education, socio-economic status, and access to information were found to influence awareness levels and adoption of sustainable behaviours. The findings underscore the need for targeted interventions, including education campaigns, policy support, and community engagement initiatives, to enhance awareness and promote sustainable practices in Coimbatore City. The article concludes with recommendations for stakeholders to collaborate towards building a more environmentally conscious and sustainable city.
