This paper seeks to explore in great depth the green construction procurement influence to green logistic services, creative activities as well as their general contribution towards economic sustainable growth. Quantitative methodology was used in this study where data collection was through survey to the engineers and project managers under construction projects. The study, hence, critically tempts to examine towards environmentally responsible procurement enhanced services towards transportation as well as the developments of new and sustainable solutions in detail.The major findings indicated towards a high significant correlation between green procurement practices and enhancement of green logistic services particularly in sustainable material handling and transportation. Moreover, green purchasing is shown to considerably boost sustainability-related product and process innovation. The research points out the need for green logistic services in contributing to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through the green construction procurement and emphasis on management and innovation of the services effectively.The study identifies that self-administered surveys limit inclusion while focus within a specific demographic creates further limitation, thus suggesting necessity for further research to understand the long-term effects of green procurement and logistics over SDGs.
