While green building (GB) implementation in Indonesia is still in its infancy, Singapore has long been recognized as one of top leaders in GB implementation in the world. With a sustainable vision of “greening 80% of all buildings in Singapore before 2030” and a national policy called “Green Mark Scheme,” it has successfully achieved more than 30% of the target in May 2016 with more than 2,700 buildings are Green Mark certified. The aim of this study is to explore lessons learned from Singapore’s GB implementation success story to be adopted in Indonesia. The objectives are to identify; (1) road map of Singapore’s GB implementation, (2) key success factors, (3) challenges of Singapore’s GB implementation. A comprehensive literature review is used to address these objectives. The results show that to support its strong green vision, Singapore has prepared a comprehensive master plan for its GB implementation and a series of regulation, standards and certification program. Key success factors identified include government policy, incentives, legislation, and strong support from related industries. Despite its current success, Singapore is still facing challenges, particularly in terms of large number of existing buildings to be certified, and high usage of natural resources and materials in construction activities. These lessons learned are very valuable to build a strategic framework for GB implementation in Indonesia.
