Abstract: Sustaining environment has been a difficult process over the past years. Malaysia normally restricts challenges on environmental issues. Mostly are caused by economic factor and lack of uniformed environmental management. Evidences of such abuses show some uncertainties in how public agencies dealt with environmental matter. And how the court address the issues is also interesting to note. The court normally encounter the problem of abuse of power via judicial review but on matters touching environment the attitude is irregular. This paper seeks to exhibit how environmental sustainability is practiced in Malaysia as compared to Australia and UK in order to identify the defects that are prevalent.
