This study attempts to explore the status of the environment related CSR disclosures in the Malaysian listed companies. The study used a content analysis method to explore the environmental disclosure. The study included all the 928 companies listed in Bursa Malaysia. The analysis was conducted on the online published annual reports and other related CSR reports published between the year 2014 – 2017.
