ISI and REHDA through GreenRE Sdn Bhd are collaborating to promote and mainstream green buildings in Malaysia. The new initiatives known as GreenRE and owned by GreenRE Sdn Bhd., envisage driving Malaysia's Real Estate and construction industry towards more environmentally friendly buildings.

GreenRE aims to promote sustainability in the built environment through new construction and retrofitting of existing buildings according to recognised international and best practices in environmental design and performance. The affordability by stakeholders to participate in green building certification remains an issue to be addressed for mainstreaming green buildings in the industry i.e., making it a norm rather than an exception. The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed by Mr.James Chua (GreenRE) and Prof Dr Mohd Hamdan Hj Ahmad signifies the start of GreenRE certification training and assessment partnership.
