Range of WIPO GREEN innovative technologies

The WIPO GREEN database categorizes green innovative technologies in seven different groups:

Clean energy

Energy production can have a detrimental impact on the environment. Clean energy should be a top global priority. The WIPO GREEN database offers renewable energy solutions including solar energy technology, wind energy solutions, biomass and hydropower. Find energy-efficiency and energy -saving innovation.


Pollution technology

Environmental pollution is a serious global issue that is affecting our health and the ecosystem. To mitigate the effect of pollution on the environment, the WIPO GREEN database gives access to a number of solutions to environmental pollution such as wastewater treatment, recycling and waste management solutions, as well as bioremediation techniques.


Water management solutions

Water scarcity is a growing global concern with water becoming a precious commodity. The WIPO GREEN database provides technologies for improved water resource management including water treatment solutions, desalination systems, water resources assessments, and coastal protection methods.


Smart farming

Agriculture contributes to 17% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions and is a cause of deforestation. The WIPO GREEN database encompasses smart farming technology including smart irrigation systems, vertical farming, precision agriculture solutions as well as stress tolerant cultivation and climate smart technologies, which can help farmers adapt to the impacts of climate change.


Green transportation

The transport sector contributes to 16% of greenhouse gas emissions. The WIPO GREEN database contains a selection of sustainable transport means including electric vehicles or low emission fuels for aviation.


Green building

The construction sector is a major contributor to climate change, accounting for 39% of energy and process-related carbon dioxide (CO2) gas emissions. The WIPO GREEN database promotes green building technologies such as thermal energy storage (TES), energy-efficiency technologies – for example in heating and cooling – and the use of sustainable building materials.


Sustainable products, materials and processes

Consumerism is responsible for resource depletion, causing pollution and deepening inequality between developed and developing countries. The WIPO GREEN database fosters sustainable consumption and production (SCP) through ethical clothing, biodegradable packaging, recycling and green manufacturing.
