To effectively promote the growth of the green building market, this study systematically defines the influential factors driving green building development across four key dimensions: the green building market environment, ecological value, economic benefits, and social environment. Utilizing Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) with Amos software, we establish a structural model for the green development within the construction industry. This model identifies the key influencing factors and critical pathways responsible for driving Green Building Development, shedding light on the underlying mechanisms. Additionally, we propose corresponding countermeasures. Our findings reveal that ecological value and the market environment of green building have both direct and overall impacts on the Green Building Industry's development. In contrast, the social environment and economic benefits of green building exert indirect effects on its development, acting as central nodes in critical impact pathways. This research offers a comprehensive model and actionable recommendations for advancing green building development, providing practical guidance for stakeholders in implementing green building strategies.
