The construction cost of a green building is higher than a normal type commercial construction. This is because green buildings involve high technologies, specific designs, special materials and equipment, and construction of waste management. Although the construction cost of a green building is expensive, the cost of maintenance for the building could be reduced in the future. However, the high costing of a green building affects its development and investment. The research objective of this study will focus more on the investment of green building in Malaysia. Therefore, the objective of this study is to explore the green building outlook in Malaysia. Furthermore, this research covers the discussion on the relationship between the results and opinion of 78 respondents and the data represents the need of green buildings in the future. Besides, the research also describes the factors that influence the investment of green building, particularly the challenges and views of green building in the future. From the result, to ensure the green building concept continue to develop in the construction industry in Malaysia, the government, non-profit organisations, investors, developers, and buyers shall cooperate to ensure the development of green building in the future.
