In actuality, by utilizing innovative technology and sustainable building materials, green buildings contribute to the reduction of energy consumption and non-renewable resource use. By utilizing solar energy, dynamic air conditioning, efficient thermal insulation, and other sustainable technology, these buildings contribute to lowering air pollution and improving interior air quality. With this kind of management, everyone from independent contributors to construction management material producers achieves a shared goal of lowering environmental harm and boosting energy efficiency. Therefore, the current study's goal is to enhance supply chain management and control's ability to promote cooperation in the construction industry The current research is descriptive-analytical in terms of method and practice in terms of purpose. The collection of information in the current research is formed of library and documentary studies and field studies using questionnaire tools. The statistical population of the current research includes stakeholders in construction projects such as engineers, builders, owners and investors. In the questionnaire tool, 50 people were randomly selected from among the statistical population as a sample size. After that, the condition of the selected buildings in Babolsar city was investigated using the WASPAS method and their prioritization. The results show that Building number 2 is ranked first, Building No. 3 is ranked second, and Building number 1 is ranked third and also shown that the purpose of creating a supply chain in green buildings is to improve the performance of construction products and services in terms of quality and sustainability.
