Abstract: Excessive development has led to main changes in world civilization, including the societal, natural environment, and economical. Construction industry is significant contributor towards numerous environmental effects. Therefore, the concept of implementation “green” has been concern. Green building has become a flagship for sustainable development that responsible for balancing long-term environmental, social health and social economic. Green building assessment systems have been introduced to evaluate the sustainability level of the green buildings such as GBI, PH JKR, GreenRE and MyCREST. Although green building assessment have been the study of many researchers over the past twenty years, it is still no systematic assessment of the detailed criteria for each assessment systems. Therefore, this research aimed to conduct critical review of green building assessment systems in Malaysia. This research is conducted through comparison analysis where the points allocated for each criteria is being measured and compared. It founds that energy efficiency criteria is the most widely used in green building assessment systems followed by water efficiency and innovations. This research showed that each green building assessment systems showed different culture and they used different criteria in evaluating the sustainability level of the green building projects. The outcomes of this research is expected to create awareness among construction industry players or decision makers to understand better and have a different perspective toward current green building assessment systems.
