Green concept is globally creating impact with diverse application at various facet of human endeavour. The concept involved the practice whereby energy is utilized in a way that it would not jeopardise continuity of energy usage in the environment. The aim of this study is to explore the issues and challenges that surround the adoption of green concept in Nigeria focusing on built environment with a view to enhancing the rate of adoption of the concept for an increased healthy environment. The study adopted convenience sampling method to pick the population for the study, which comprised of picking construction companies that engaged on a project that involved green building features. Population frame of 250 professionals that are registered with professional bodies that cut across 20 selected construction firms was used for the study. A structured questionnaire designed in Likert scale of 1 to 5 was distributed among 50 respondents for data collation. The data was later processed using content analysis, descriptive statistics and relative agreement index. Data was collated on parameters that include evaluation of existing issues and challenges involved in green building concept innovations adoption in construction practice, current green concept practice in construction, challenges involved in adoption of green concept in construction, critical issues involved in green concept adoption, drivers for success in the adoption of green concepts in construction, challenges involved in adoption of green concept in construction. Innovative illustrations of integration of green concepts in buildings. Mean Item Score was used with relative agreement index, this was used to rate the perception of respondents on parameters calibrated for respondents to answer. Categorical regression analysis was used to carry out comparative analysis of respondents’ submission on success factors that influences the adoption of green building concept and challenges involved in the adoption of green building. Some other parameters were further explored, they include, innovative approach to sustainable construction practice and perspectives to green building practice. The analysis of the study brought to fore factors to be taken into consideration for effective adoption of green building concept. The challenges such as thought reengineering and philosophical and cultural adjustment need to be further harnessed for people to leave the built environment better than it was met
