          Abstract

          Despite striving to save the society from environmentally-related diseases, hospitals contribute to adverse environmental impacts. Green hospitals encourage public health through continuous reduction of its impact on the environment and the consequent burden of diseases. The concept strongly associates human health and the environment through green hospitals operations, governance and strategy. This paper examines the green environment policy and practice in the Malaysian medical hospital framework in comparison with selected countries and provides suggestions for the betterment of the green agenda and practices to improve the hospitals’ internationalisation performance, hence uplifting the quality of life of affected parties.
