Environmental issues are nowadays a challenging topic in several research disciplines. Scare resources, environmental pollution, and the rising awareness for resource-friendly behavior guides companies to emphasize environmental aspects in their business decisions and reporting. To achieve this, Information Technology (IT) plays a vital role as an enabler for sophisticated reporting and analytics. In general, these IT systems are called Environmental Management Information Systems (EMIS). This papers aims to provide an overview of the current research status on EMIS globally in information systems research. This is done by conducting a structured literature study in relevant research outlets. Based on this result, a research agenda is outlined to reflect the current development in environmental topics like energy provisioning in IS research. This research agenda identifies relevant research directions for academia as well as synergetic potential in industry practice for further development.
