Sustainability is at the forefront in today’s business world. There is a growing trend of embedding design science research into sustainability projects as a research approach aimed at solving the real world problems. However, there are no clear guidelines and uniformity in terms of frameworks, methods and evaluations for using DSR for sustainability. Consequently, there is a need for systematic investigation of DSR for sustainability. In absence of such studies, we aim to conduct systematic literature review using PRISMA method to investigate how DSR is integrated in sustainability research. In addition to the descriptive findings from 42 selected articles, this review indicates that the use of DSR for sustainability is advancing and attracting many researchers, but, several studies have used DSR in their research without properly validating the need and relevance of methods to solve sustainability concerns.
