The current paper examines the significance of sustainable development, i.e. the environmental expenditures’ role in the public departments and ministries in Jordan, centering on environment-based public departments and ministries. The paper gives insight into the relationship between environmental expenditures allocated allocates to public departments and ministries by the Jordanian government and their effect on the general environmental performance. Using a mixed approach enhances the results’ quality. To study the budgets of 22 environment-based public departments and ministries, the quantitative approach is used. With the use of time series from 2006 to 2015, the study is carried out. The qualitative approach is applied to raise environment-based subject matters unaddressed in the quantitative study and comprehend the respondents’ perception of the Jordanian public departments and ministries on the items and factors incorporated into the budgets of public departments and ministries affecting their environmental performance. The findings demonstrate that environmental spending and environmental performance in Jordan share a significant relationship. The findings provide novel and applicable implications for the sustainability development thinkers and specialists, showing the significant impact of environmental expenditures in public departments and ministries and their relationship to the Jordanian government’s environmental performance.
