In recent years public attention to environmental issues has increased dramatically. Due to increasing concerns about environmental quality, climate change and environmental emissions, environmental performance has emerged as an important measure of sustainable development. The main objective of this study was to evaluate environmental performance in selected countries, using a combination of data envelopment analysis and game theory in a competitive environment, to calculate desirable and undesirable outputs in 2014. The results indicate that selected countries had an average environmental performance of 71.92 percent. This performance can be improved by 9.04 percent through optimizing output and 28.8 percent through more efficient use of inputs. Amongst the sample countries, Bahrain and Poland had the best performance.  In addition, Argentina, Bahrain, Brazil, China, Indonesia, Kuwait, Nigeria, Poland, Qatar and Saudi Arabia were in a better position than other countries to improve their environmental performance given a symmetric relationship between desirable and undesirable factors under conditions of a game theory bargain.
