The Hawaii Green Party (HIGP) is the official organization of the Green Party of the United States in the state of Hawaii.

The HGP first qualified for the ballot in May 1992, one of the earliest state Green Parties to do so.

In November 1992, Keiko Bonk was elected to a seat on the Big Island County Council, the first Green to be elected in a partisan race in the United States. She was re-elected in 1994, but stepped down to run unsuccessfully for Island Mayor in 1996.

In November 1998, Julie Jacobson was elected to Bonk's old seat on the Big Island, which she held upon re-election in 2000. When she decided not to run in 2002, her husband Bob Jacobson ran and was elected, then re-elected again in 2004 and 2006. Jacobson lost in 2008. No Green Party members have since held elected office in Hawaii.
