Sustainable leadership is a significant leadership that spreads, lasts, and sustains by putting deep and broad learning for all. Ministry of Education M alaysia has set guidelines to ensure and enhance leadership effectiveness by improving the headmaster’s knowledge, skills and experiences. However, studies have proven that headmasters are lacking in developing and sustaining leadership effectiveness in schools. This study aimed to investigate the level of sustainable leadership among headmasters and the level o f teachers’ organizational commitment in public primary schools of Pasir Gudang, Johore. This study also examines the correlation between sustainable leadership practice and teachers’ organizational commitment. A quantitative method is employed in this study. A digital questionnaire is sent to 114 teachers who were selected by non-probability purposive sampling. The data analyzed using Statistical Package for Science Social (SPSS) version 26. The analysis signifies that the level o f headmasters’ sustainable level is low and similarly the level of affective and normative commitment of teachers recorded is low. In contrast, the continuance commitment o f teachers is remarkably high. Furthermore, the employment of the non-parametric Spearman Correlation test denotes a strong and high positive correlation between the two variables and the correlation is statistically significant. The researcher forwarded recommendations that the headmasters should undergo more training and development workshops to comprehend the importance of sustainable leadership in current educational settings and different target populations also can be chosen to generalize. In the future, the qualitative method can be considered to understand the concept of sustainable leadership in depth.
