Abstract: The green transformational leadership (GTL) type adopting green values is an important internal resource and capability of the corporations in terms of environmental sustainability. This situation rationalises why the GTL needs to be deeply explored and comprehensively developed. Therefore, it is very important to analyse the studies on GTL and to classify existing studies collecting as titles with an interpretive approach. In this study, it has been proposed that with an integrative systematic literature review, both the situation of present knowledge about GTL will be described and future research agenda is to be suggested. In direction of this aim, the subjects analysed are national context, method, economic sector, research focus, mediator variable of research and the position of GTL in the analytical model. Results show that most researchers conduct their research on developing countries, and usually prefer quantitative methods and mostly discuss GTL style as drivers of employees’ green behavior at work. A future research agenda with six propositions is made by evaluating basic theoretical gaps in the field.
