Industrialization has come with its gains and setbacks. One major setback of
industrialization through technological advancement is its impact on global warming. The
invention of technological advancement and its use in industry has impacted living
conditions and the environment. The problem hit a high pitch and resulted in various
generation of green gas emission thereby depleting the protective layer of the ozone.
Consequently, the world is in danger of direct sunlight, harmful pollution of emission into
the air and the degradation of the environment. The paper adopts a content-based analysis
with the use of secondary data to establish the importance of a low carbon economy.
Findings showed that a paradigm shift is needed in technological mechanism to create a low
carbon economy that will be friendlier and transform that policy-driven transition to green
growth will have a positive impact on the labour markets in creating a new form of job
opportunity and a cleaner environment. Therefore, it is recommended that research, policy
making and fund availability by international organizations and government of nations is
assiduously promoted to attain a low carbon economy.
