This paper tries to provide an overview of green marketing from marketing mix point of view. The aim of green marketing is to include environmental issues in the marketing efforts. The idea is that marketers provide consumers with better information about the green properties of the products offered and then they will include this information in their purchasing decisions. This will consequently push companies to produce products that are better from an environmental point of view. Consequently companies have executed various green marketing strategies to meet the demands of environmentally sensible customers as they are very much aware of what they are consuming. For this reason they demand such products that are environment friendly and organizations are bound to meet the requirements for their survival in today’s competitive market. Companies that use the extreme green strategy fully incorporate environmental issues and responsibility into their business strategies and address issues related to marketing mix for the environment. Strategic greening in one area may or may not be leveraged effectively in others. So, organizations must ensure that green marketing activities are assimilated holistically, especially if they are used in positioning or promotional activities.
