Green sukuk (GS) is a recent innovation that has the potential to serve humankind in sustainable development. However, its potential can only be achieved if the proceeds of GS are used for the priority areas needed. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to find out, using selected GS issued to determine whether the proceeds of GS are actually given to the needed areas. This is qualitative research utilizing case studies where the "priorities given" areas are observed through information collected from the library that consists of primary and secondary sources, such as statutes, books, articles and internet sources, while "priorities needed to issue GS" areas are determined through information collected from Al-Quran and hadiths to derive conclusions. The outcome of this study reveals some untouched areas that needed immediate attention where GS can be implemented. This study recommends implementing GS for the plant, agriculture, forests, road, water, animal and others. One example in this regard is to create "forest sukuk," which is a tool for financing forest preservation.
