The implementation of green concept in construction industry is really important as it can reduce the negative impacts. However, developers still using conventional way to construct the housing. This gives huge impact to our environment and also human health. Meanwhile, there are actually some barriers hinder developers to adopt this in their projects.

In this study, the perception of stakeholders on sustainable housing will be reviewed. Thus, this study could really help our awareness on environment and create a more healthy living space to for stakeholders.
