Green buildings in Malaysia

The Green Building Index (GBI) is Malaysia's version of the green rating tool, conceptualised in 2008. This rating system provides incentives to Malaysian developers and building owners to take sustainability and the environment into consideration in their designs. Similar rating schemes have been implemented by many ecologically-friendly developed countries, including our regional peers such as the Green Mark system in Singapore (since 2005) and Green Star in Australia (since 2003).

The GBI assessment process includes three steps:
1. Application & registration
2. Design assessment
3. Completion & verification assessment
