Inspired by previous studies research gap findings and limitations in management system functions to produce sustainabilityrelated reporting authors set a goal to map the current academic literature in the context of waste management systems. The method chosen for the work was a systematic literature review, focusing on the Web of Science and Scopus databases. The authors found a total of 115 unique publications from the selected databases, which were filtered 28 contributing studies. With these studies, this study found that most of the publications are journals and almost half of the work has been published in the last 3 years. Additionally, sustainability and waste management reporting related literature seem to enjoy wide appreciation among the peers, indicated by a high number of references these publications had gathered. As an overall finding, the specific research area of waste management process quantified data reporting seems really young overall and needs additional research with multiple research gaps clearly waiting for follow-up research to pinpoint the specific areas to contribute in the near future.
