The aim of this article is to explain the management and implementation of a clean and green city concept in Malaysia. Specifically, we explain that the clean and green city concept is a sub-concept of sustainable development and entails a balance between society, the environment, and the economy. As such, the concept has complicated the national plan. Malaysia’s government uses political machinery to pass policies on to local governments so they can work on and manage them locally. However, the law is very important in changing people’s behaviors, so the government must act rigorously and equitably so Malaysia can become a clean and green city soon. In addition, for long-term success, the government must focus on educating youth and students to make them aware of the clean and green concept.
