The petrochemical industry consumes fossil fuels, generates ample amounts of greenhouse gases, and the necessary items we need regularly. With the increasing emphasis on sustainability and environmental responsibilities to deal with environmental pollutants, industry needs adaptation to greener practices. This mini review aims to shed light on the strategies that have been implemented already, such as the use of renewable energy sources, the implementation of the circular economy principle, the adaptation of a cleaner production process, and the development of a more sustainable feedstock to green the petrochemical industry with a focus on sustainability. The review also discusses the challenges and limitations associated with the complete implementation of the ideas due to the economic issues coming in between. Overall, it will highlight the need for innovative strategies to achieve a sustainable goal and the role of stakeholders, including government, companies, and consumers, to work hand-in-hand to make the future beautiful.
