Construction industries have contribution to the global warming because the activities of constructing buildings involve the usage of fossil fuels which emit a lot of toxic gases and harmful to humans and the environment. Furthermore, the buildings and projects constructed also contribute greatly to the global warming because these buildings need power, and most of them are powered by conventional power plants which use also highly polluting fossil fuels such as coal and oil. This mix of environmental impact from the actual building construction itself and from the operation of these buildings after construction is one of many human activities that lead to the emission of greenhouse gases, especially the carbon dioxide (CO2), The aim of this research is to investigate the contractors’ understanding of green construction, In this research will be using the Questionnaires (primary data) as a method of collecting data. The best method and the easiest method as well to collecting data is questionnaire that will give accurate result during the analyzing of data, A quantitative analysis will be use for the questions and the comparison between five companies, Appropriate representations and tables are obtain to understanding analyze the quest are will be use to analyze questionnaires, The analysis date finally using descriptive methods for easy interpretation and to enable comparisons and inferences to be drawn. This chapter contains the results of data analysis obtained from the respondents’ responses to the questionnaire sent to them. In total twenty five questionnaires were distributed to five respondents in each of the five construction companies surveyed in this study. Of the twenty five questionnaires sent, only twenty two were returned. For the final source of data only twenty one questionnaires were analyzed as one of them turned out to be sent by a drafter, which was not among the intended target respondents for this study due to the presumably lack of knowledge in the matters discussed in this study the contractors have heard about the green construction, so they have knowledge about that and they give many examples
