In recent years, interests and activities related to green building has increased. As stakeholders such as builders, architects, and developers have moved towards implementing green building criteria and sub criteria of energy efficiency and the greater usage of reuse and recycled materials in developing homes. The benefits of this transition also influenced the development of affordable homes. In Malaysia, green building for new residential construction consists of six criteria. However the green building criteria are not focusing on affordable home as in Green Communities in US, Eco Homes in UK and Ecocents Living in Australia. Indeed, they have their own green criteria and sub criteria as a means and guidelines for green affordable home development. This paper aims to perceive the criteria and sub criteria of green building which correspond to the types of affordable home in respect to local condition within Malaysia. This research will utilize the Delphi Hierarchy Process (DHP) methodology which integrates the delphi method with the analytic hierarchy process. It assists the expert panels to systematically identify the green affordable home criteria and sub criteria. The findings proposed in this research will be DHP decision model for green affordable home in Malaysia as a tool for decision making for developers in green affordable home development. It is hoped that this study will help to cater the issues of affordable homes as well as environmental with implementation of green building criteria and sub criteria into affordable home in Malaysia.
