Abstract

This systematic literature review explores the evolution and significance of environmental sustainability practices from 2010 to 2023. Through this exploration, we aim to uncover discernible patterns, emerging trends, and valuable insights that shed light on the trajectory of these practices and their far-reaching consequences for environmental conservation and sustainable development. The review highlights the growing awareness of ecological sustainability by using a four-step technique to select 351 papers. Our key findings underscore the critical role of multidisciplinary collaboration, data-driven decision-making, and adaptive management strategies in advancing environmental sustainability practices. Notably, technological advancements in data collection, analysis, and modeling, such as remote sensing, satellite technology, and citizen science initiatives, have substantially enhanced the efficacy of these practices. Furthermore, shifts in governmental frameworks and international agreements, such as the Paris Agreement and the Convention on Biological Diversity, have profoundly influenced the trajectory of environmental sustainability practices. This review serves as a valuable tool for comprehending the evolution and impact of environmental sustainability initiatives, offering insights that can inform policy decisions, future research, and practical applications toward fostering a more sustainable and harmonious coexistence with our planet.
