Abstract: Global warming and climate change have been a hot topic as it changes the way people live. Temperature is fluctuating and sea level is rising shows that the environment requires attention. Everyone should do their part in achieving sustainable environment for the sake of future generations. Many countries have look into sustainable or green building as the building sector has consumed the most energy consumption as compared to other sectors. Different types of schemes are introduced to comply with the standards with regard to the performance of the building. All is done to reduce the environmental impact created from developing a building till its end of lifespan. In Singapore, Green Mark Scheme is introduced to address the mentioned concern. The focus of this research is to identify the success factors of developers to obtain Green Mark certification for buildings in Singapore. The Green Mark scheme has different ratings and is made mandatory in order to drive the building industry to go green. The research seeks to identify the reasons why some developers and building owners will go for Green Mark Platinum rating and some go for Green Mark Certified rating for the respective buildings. Two hypotheses are then drawn out to be tested for this study. Case study, interviews and a questionnaire survey are the research methods used for the study. From the study, critical success factors of green buildings were identified and discussed. The results from the findings have shown that developers and building owners are willing to get higher ratings of Green Mark certification for their developments rather than focusing on the profit margin and achieve only minimum ratings of the Green Mark certification. Recommendations such as providing more incentives, reduction of taxes and fees, and implementing laws and regulations were discussed so as to encourage the building industry to go for better green buildings. Every industry players should do their part so all can work towards a common goal which is to have a better environment for our future.
