The construction industry environment nowadays is becoming more complex with more issues to be resolved with the agreeable approaches amongst the team. Nevertheless, the Building Information Modelling (BIM) innovation is acknowledged to disentangle those prevalent issues towards delivering a better project performance. With the emergence of BIM technology, various concerns such as constant errors and reworks, team-miscommunication, construction waste, energy inefficiencies, and many more in the industry practices, could be refined. Specifically, BIM capabilities mainly facilitate the design and construction operations. Albeit the processes involved demand an early planning and profound decision-making, the BIM mechanism helps the project team to execute the proposed construction projects effectively. With regards to maintaining the sustainability in the industry, “Green BIM” term is introduced to describe the manipulation of BIM technology to be incorporated along with the sustainable design and construction techniques. Therefore, this paper reviews the potentials of “Green BIM” in improving the traditional practices of project stakeholders throughout the project life cycle, particularly focusing on the design and construction phases. It discusses the previous studies on “Green BIM”, “Green BIM” concepts, and “Green BIM” approaches concerning its benefits and challenges in enhancing the construction industry practices. Significantly, through the appropriate “Green BIM” resolution, the procedures initiated with the green settings and completed with the green requirements, could empower more sustainable construction industry
