Abstract: This article presents an introduction to green tribology, a new direction in the field's evolution, an exciting new topic for scientific study, and a novel approach to making tribology a friend to the environment and a proponent of energy conservation. Green engineering and green chemistry are two more "green" fields that are thought to be closely related to green tribology. The article has discussions on a variety of green tribology topics, including the concept, views, role and goal, major principles, key areas, challenges, and future development directions. As an interdisciplinary topic combining energy, materials science, green lubrication, and environmental science, green tribology also attracted human interest due to its biomimetic approach. Hence, the use of biomimicry in environmental design is also discussed in this article.

Keywords: tribology, renewable energy, biomimetics, biomimicry, bionics, environmental design.
