Generating administrative and legal processes from environmental management is one of the premises contained in the Millennium Sustainable Development Goals. The purpose of this research is to analyze the state of knowledge of sustainable environmental management, through a systematic normative review in Latin America, for the period 2020-2021. The methodology was referred to conduct a bibliometric study through the Scopus database to systematize the state of knowledge of environmental management for sustainable development. The results of the scientific evidence on environmental management are that in Latin America there are legal efforts to incorporate the environmental issue, limited use of Agenda 2030 as objectives that should guide management and particularly the decision-making process, and little use of technology as a resource to resolve environmental conflicts. In conclusion, to achieve sustainable environmental management, the systematization of legal regulatory frameworks is urgent, and it is essential to strengthening sustainability with a humanistic and environmental vision of management.
