Buildings account for two-fifths of its material, where it causes’ water, air pollution, and degrades the land in the world. While, materials are the substance of economic life in industrial sector, which have resource inputs and product outputs of industrial production. To mitigate the impact, International Council of Research and Innovation in Building and Construction (CIB) identified green building towards achieving sustainability. This led to the issue on how to assess the building life cycle. Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) is the first Green Building Rating System that introduce in 1990. Green Building Index (GBI) from Malaysia and Greenship from Indonesia are the two recent ones, introduced in 2009 and 2010 respectively. GBRS evaluates the performances of the building, give an award points, through each criteria, and sub criteria. This paper identifies GBI and Greenship in how they evaluating building materials component as one of the criteria. Finally, it was found that both, in some point, have different assessment to evaluate building in terms of their building materials.
