A highway is a main public road that connects towns and cities. Subsequently, a green highway is the transportation corridor which is based on a relatively new concept of roadway design that integrates major cities and towns. A green highway also provides more sustainable construction techniques and approaches to maximise its lifespan. The need for evaluation of sustainability and green development requires an assessment system of a green highway. An assessment system is required to evaluate the sustainability of a highway for construction projects. The aim of this study is to explore the environmental elements for green highway in the tropical climate of Malaysia. The objective is to identify the essential fundamental environment elements in a tropical climate for green highway assessment. The methodology is using desk study. This study has discovered eight fundamental environment elements of the green highway.
