Abstract: This article searches for a more complete meaning for an expression which has been more and more adopted by academic and managerial forums: environmental technology. The development, adoption and diffusion of environmental technologies require that social agents, institutions and social sectors have a common and proper understanding of the meaning of environmental technology. However, the state of the art conceptual proposals are unable to answer the challenge of finding a clear definition of the term. This article explores the term's taxonomy and identifies it's development and dissemination process, giving a fuller meaning for environmental technology.
