Sustainable development is of much focus now-a-days due to global warming and continuing depletion of natural resources. Implementation of sustainable consumption and production patterns is central to achieving sustainable development. Many countries along with the United Nations have reiterated this fact in multiple global platforms. Growing industrialisation and population growth are gradually making developing countries more and more susceptible to unsustainable patterns of production and consumption. Many governments are taking strategies to change this situation. Science and technology have been proven to be effective in fighting poverty and un-sustainability in many cases previously, and have the potential to be helpful in the implementation of sustainable patterns of consumption and production. This paper, therefore, focuses on the use of technology, in the form of ICT, in changing unsustainable patterns of consumption and production in the context of Bangladesh.
