Abstract: In 2005, the world’s population has risen to an alarming figure of 6.5 billion. This puts huge pressure on demand for food supply, water and essential natural resources such as timber. Advancement in technology has further devastated and depleted the world resources through more advanced exploration and mining of oil, coal and natural gases. One reason to relate people and its consumption patterns is human thinking. The way humans react and awareness of what is going on around them decides on the future’s outcome. If today, people continue to behave the same way for the next 50 years, future generations may question their parents, what they have done to the Earth? The objectives of this research are to bring about awareness to the local construction industry stakeholders regarding their practices in Green Construction Project Management (GCPM). Secondly, to justify the rising trend in adopting these green practices, showing that is it possible and not uncommon in such practices. Lastly, is to identify the barriers in implementing GCPM in order to recommend solutions to these green practices. This research study is designed to be a review of local construction industry practices. Thus, the research methodology deployed is face-to-face interviews with stakeholders, who are experienced in GCPM and gathering statistical data from local and overseas sources. The stakeholders’ feedback on their respective work involvements will be tabulated for easy referencing and detailed description of the job scope. The conclusion will consist of stakeholders’ feedback on the challenges regarding GCPM, proposed recommendations in order to enhance future outlook of the construction industry and discussing the limitations of pursuing GCPM by the stakeholders in the local construction
