Global warming has been a major issue over the years and even after the implementation of the Kyoto Protocol on the 11th of December 1997 and other treaties which followed, the situation is still alarming. This paper is a summary of the measures taken by the Mauritian government and the private sector to contribute towards a greener environment for the island, and also to increase the awareness of the overall population, so as each and everyone can contribute as well on his/her behalf to make the "Maurice Ile Durable" concept a success in the coming years. A lot of work is currently being done by the Mauritian Government to inculcate good environmental-friendly behaviour in Mauritius citizens. Many large private organisations have also joined hands to make Mauritius a pollution free island. However, despite all these measures, it is clear that a lot of work still has to be done to make Mauritius become an island who derives all its energy from renewable sources.
