The paper aims to study the novel concept of 'Lean Construction' in the world. Another intention is to examine how current Lean construction tools and methods impact the construction and operation of sustainable facilities. The Lean and green Construction philosophy can tremendously improve the needs and result in high productivity of the construction industry. The paper also finds out how these Lean construction tools and methods have evolved to contribute to green construction. In order to achieve the project aim, there are four main objectives: 1. To investigate the concept of lean and its application to the construction industry. 2. To define sustainability and identify its application to the construction industry. 3. To establish a link between the lean and sustainability. The Lean principles emphasise on eliminating process and material wastes and which can further result to the green construction which emphasise on the energy efficiency and the cost efficiency.
