Abstract

This research examines the practice of green property management (GPM) for commercial buildings. Property management is the process of taking care of properties so as to meet the interests of all people having an interest in the property. The extent of damage to the environment from current unsustainable living today has driven building users and operators to adopt a more environmental practice towards property asset management. Nevertheless, practice for GPM experiences different understanding on the concept and hence, there is no standard practice towards it. In this research, the procedures and methods of developing the green property management framework examines some of the property management requirements for the practice of GPM, in particular, for commercial buildings. In particular, it examines the work procedures in current property management practice by property professionals and to integrate performance measurement by the GBI in designing the framework for GPM practice.
