Abstract

The implementation of the Green Property Management (GPM) by the building manager for an office building is important for the sustainability of nature and living mechanism. However, the lack of guidelines or green management framework is preventing the property managers from applying the green management concept. The practice of GPM is not totally adopted in Malaysia. The aforementioned points highlight some of the problems arising from the successful implementation of the Green Building Index. Controlling the professional practice towards green management, the documenting of specific rules for practice and the standards for practice are some of the requirements for GPM to operate. In formulating the framework for GPM, there is a need to determine the structure for operation of the GPM practice. There must also be a body to which legal power is given to oversee the smooth operation of the practice. The adoption of operational standards as determined earlier must be the guide for its implementation by property managers.
