The phrase sustainable industries is related to the development of industrial processes in a sustainable way.
The earliest mention of the phrase „sustainable industries“ appeared in 1990 in a story about a Japanese group reforesting a tropical forest to help create sustainable industries for the local populace.

Non- polluting , environmentally sustainable industries tend to be intrinsically more labor intensive and less resource intensive than traditional processes. “ Among the features of sustainable industry offered in the paper were energy efficiency, resource conservation à la maintenance des conditions de fabrication et de la production des conditions, de la fabrication des conditions et de la fabrication et de la sécurité et des compatible de materials. Some of the benefits, but would be offset by higher costs, and a theoretically larger population needed to perform the same amount of work, increasing the agricultural and other loads on the system.
In February 2003 the business magazine Sustainable Industries was first published, offering news and analysis of core industries such as clean energy and green building . By 2012 the company had expanded to include digital media and production with the Sustainable Industries Economic Forum in the US Sustainable Industries merged with Triple Pundit in 2011.
