The Green building (GB) concept has been widely adopted by practitioners from the building and construction industry in the last few decades as an effort to reduce the negative environment al impacts caused by the development of the built environment. GB concept emphasizes resource usage efficiency, which focuses on conserving the natural resources to preserve the climate and environment through innovations in building design, construction methods, and materials. Awareness and surge of attention to the healthy building (HB) concept, which focuses on the quality of life and well-being in buildings, has increased lately due to the pandemic. However, minimal evidence was found regarding the implementation of healthy buildings. Therefore, this study aims to identify the building variables and elements that construct the HB concept and determine its differences from GB. Archive analysis and comparative study were performed to obtain this objective, taking into account the GB guideline practiced in Indonesia and several HB parameters derived from the literature. The results of this study indicated that there are elements that overlap, particularly in the indoor environmental quality factor, but there are fundamental differences between the two concepts.
