To achieve the research objectives, the managersí and project expertsí opinions have been collected via the field method. Therefore, in order to follow the research purposes, the managersí and project expertsí opinions are used. Also, their opinions are studied in order to determine the research variables. In this research, the statistical population consists of contractors, engineers, and managers of the construction managers who use the green project management in their project. As the findings reveal, applying strategic management affects the index of principles of green project cost control.
