Malaysia is a dynamic economy which has been evolving constantly over the years. It is a middle income country and has transformed itself since 1970s from a producer of raw materials into a promising multi-sector economy spurred by high technology, knowledge-based and capital intensive industries. Malaysia’s dependence on non renewable source of energy is increasing with the rising population and urbanization in the country. Malaysia, in recognizing the issues of climate change and energy security, has taken the step to promote Green Technology (GT) as part of the solution. It is anticipated that the promotion of green technology would facilitate the achievement of Malaysia's commitment to adopt an indicator of a voluntary reduction of up to 40% in terms of emissions intensity of GDP by the year 2020 compared to 2005 levels. Green technology will be one of the emerging drivers of economic growth for the country to achieve high-income status while addressing the imperative issue of the sustainability.

With the rising number of green certifications, the demand for green materials has also surged. The market for green building materials in Malaysia has escalated from USD ~ million in 2010 to USD ~ million in 2013.

Consequently, the focus of green building construction is shifting from new building design and construction to greening existing buildings.
