The creation of a sustainable future depends on the knowledge as well as participation of the people, as well as an understanding of the consequences of individual behavior. Construction industry has long been associated with the harmful effects to our mother earth. As concepts of Green building took form in new real trends and planning curriculum, Green building in general continues to have not received much attention with the public. Because the question of techniques the general population perceives Green building concepts may be of ultimate importance, it seems the logical beginning reason behind trying to capture something in regards to the character of support for green building initiatives should be to survey people who may be most likely by having an opinion. The research examines support for green building initiatives while controlling for awareness, gender, and age. This paper focuses on the actions proposed to be carried out by the government, non-government organizations as well as construction players in promoting green building awareness to the general public. To ensure that all those concerted efforts are never only skin deep in its impact, a survey had been carried out to investigate the level of awareness regarding this issue. The survey conducted revealed that although the general public are aware of the growing problems on sustainability, minor efforts are developed from them in implementing this. A lot more work is necessary needed to enhance public awareness in the application of green building and further stimulate measures and strategies towards a sustainable build environment.
