The UNEP Emissions Gap Report 2020 highlighted buildings and cities as one among six sector solutions for climate change through enhanced energy efficiency and carbon reduction. A good performing green building is seen as a solution for energy efficiency and environmental protection, but performance of green building is largely affected by maintenance management. Studies have suggested that green buildings might not be performing as intended. While maintenance management has been widely researched, green maintenance performance has rarely been studied. Hence, a systematic literature review was conducted on the integration of green maintenance principles into maintenance performance indicators for green buildings. This review was based on the publication standard, namely RepOrting Standards for Systematic Evidence Syntheses (ROSES) and integrated multiple research designs. Two leading databases (Web of Science and Scopus) were utilized. Based on the data, for green maintenance principles and performance indicators, 4 main aspects were established, namely environment, economy, technical and social with 5 green maintenance principles. For green maintenance performance, 11 green maintenance indicators and 25 sub-indicators were identified. This study has offered significant contribution to the body of knowledge on this topic. The findings explained the importance of integrating green maintenance principles into maintenance performance for green building to ensure desired maintenance performance, as follows: 1) to encourage green building managers to realise their role in maintenance performance; 2) to plan integration strategies according to the desired maintenance performance; and 3) to inform on the knowledge gap existence on specific areas and future studies suggestions. © 2021, University of Malaya.
