Abstract: Escalating global environmental stress has triggered communities around the world to rethink their pattern of consumption and impact of rapid urbanization on the environment. Over two decades, developed countries like the U.S. and UK have been promoting sustainable development by bringing awareness of political, social and economic impact from the two aforementioned effects. Due to their pioneering efforts, researchers and real estate developments have seen the evolution of better Green Buildings, improvement of assessing methods, and innovation of new green technologies. Costs and benefits were recognized throughout the process and occupancy of green developments. These were compiled within this study. It describes various renowned Green building rating systems internationally expounded and from Singapore. A further study on Green office features were showcased from various countries which includes those certified as green commercial developments by Singapore authorities. An additional study was done on office occupants in Singapore on their awareness and supportiveness of Green office features. Although respondents lacked awareness, they welcomed the needs of Green office.
