This study examines the process of negotiations towards acceptance of the Montreal Protocol in Malaysia specifically on environmental management It focuses on one of the successful Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs) that is, Montreal Protocol. Montreal Protocol managed to seek international environmental cooperation among almost all of the states around the world and able to accomplish its own objectives in order to achieve environmental sustainability. Four major approaches were used, namely the approach based on power, interest, knowledge and institutional forum in relation to the influence towards the above-said process of the negotiations. In this study qualitative method was used in valuing analyses of some of the more relevant meeting documents of Montreal Protocol and interviewing the key persons in the process of the negotiations towards the acceptance of the Montreal Protocol at national level in dealing with environmental management. Overall, based on document analysis, there were 10 main themes and 26 sub-themes which have been identified. Meanwhile based on interviews, there were 9 main themes and 27 sub-themes which have been identified that influenced the negotiations at national level which build up the environmental cooperation in the Montreal Protocol in order to achieve environmental sustainability within environmental management Therefore, in conclusion, mis study has shown that the acceptance of the MEAs as in the example of the Montreal Protocol has its strength in the process of the negotiations discussions, which was based on four approaches (namely power, interest, knowledge and institutional forum) and the perspective of ideas that depend on the concept of interdependence.
