It is known that one of the leading cause of climate change is greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. There are multiple contributors to the rise of GHG emissions worldwide, including the project development sector after the energy and transportation sector. A strategic approach is needed to ensure the acceptance of low-carbon initiatives (LCI) in the project development and construction sectors, especially with the local government in Malaysia. The acceptance of the LCI has been evaluated based on four (4) influencing factors identified in this research. A survey questionnaire was developed based on the acceptance measurement model built on those identified factors. The 163 responses were collected from the survey and analysed via simulation in SmartPLS 3.0 to determine the validity and reliability of the model. The analysis has found that three (3) out of four (4) factors identified were significant towards the acceptance of LCI in local government project implementation: "Awareness", "Knowledge", and "Financial Concern".
