Green buildings are consistent objects which consider environment issues and natural resources throughout their life cycle. The risks on green construction projects reduce the accuracy of the estimation of the projects objectives and reduce the efficiency of green building projects. Therefore, identification and prioritization of risks can play a significant role in the success of green construction projects. In this research, a comprehensive model of all criteria and indicators of the risks for green construction projects are presentedAt first step, the indicators have been evaluated and ranked first by fuzzy Delphi technique by the identification and verification experts, and then by combining the results of the network analysis process and the DEMATEL technique in fuzzy conditions. Finally, the final ranking of the indicators is done according to the results obtained in the super decision software. in fuzzy conditions to rank and evaluate the causal relationships between the factors and ultimately final prioritizing green building risk indicators have been done in terms of the results of the initial steps using the fuzzy Analysis Network Process FANP and DEMATEL technique. The results of the research showed that the risks associated with poor quality of materials and inappropriate equipment are very important and the lack of scale for the cost of activities has the least importance.
