The purpose of this study is to investigate the environmental performance of the countries in Far East Asia using data envelopment analysis (DEA). The environmental efficiency scores of 17 countries are computed and the trend for environmental efficiency is analysed from year 2002 to 2010. Three different DEA models, which are the constant returns to scale model, variable returns to scale model and the undesirable output model are used to provide efficiency scores from a few perspectives. Generally, the environmental performance of the region is low and it has a decreasing trend. Only Hong Kong, Macao, Brunei, Singapore and Japan have high efficiency scores for all three models. There is a noticeable gap between the efficiency scores of the efficient and inefficient countries, suggesting that there is a lot of room for the region to improve its environmental performance.
