This research report shown the Green Building Technology’s mechanisms and approaches involved in our local construction field in Malaysia. The report prepared is to identify and to figure out the solution about the issues that preventing majority industry to take part in implementation and promoting Green Building Technology (GBT) in Malaysia. Implementation of Green Building Technology capable in enhancing environmental concerns, minimising negative impacts to environment, and lead capacity development model to manage the environment and up keeping of the quality in Malaysian construction industry. The adoption of green building technology (GBT) to improve building performance is a new trend. For instance, Malaysia government sector, Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB), has create guideline for good practice in sustainable building construction, develop eco-label and environmental certification scheme for construction materials, as known as SIRIM QAS International Sdn Bhd. According to Construction Industry Transformation Programme 2016 - 2020 (CITP 2016 - 2020), the second strategic thrusts: Environmental Sustainability, provide a model for the emerging world that aimed to create high compliance to the environmental sustainability rating and practices in order to make our country into a low carbon, sustainable building and infrastructure hub. However, there are still circumstances that current and future planned building construction not applying Green Building Technology in the construction. In Malaysia, Green Building Technology currently facing several types of challenges, slowing industry’s step towards GBTs adoption. Thus, this study possibility on developing of modern construction technology to lead to the effect that buildings become more sustainable, energy efficiency, as well as forming environment surrounded with lower carbon footprint and negative impact.
