The keyword “environmental management system” and “ISO 14001” were inserted on Capes portal which returned with 144 scientific publications. Among these publications, after critical analysis in the inclusion parameters, and through the use of snowballing technique, 79 scientific articles were selected. The reading and tabulation of these studies occurred through the reading technique multiple assessor. The results show that there have been an increasing concern with the researches about the theme in 1995, but the greatest volume since 2004, the publication of the articles has been concentrated in journals with qualis B1 to B3 in multidisciplinary area, most studies include the country as analysis unit, in diverse activities sectors. The theme approach tendency (environmental, socio-ecological and economical implications) based in Chi-square tests have a sensitive intensity, no consistency and reliability. Consequently, the existence of the inequality in the importance attributed to the themes and subthemes help in the indication of the new researches which can clarify gaps in the theoretical and practical knowledge slightly explored, but they are essential to a better insertion of the environmental management system in the corporate world.
