Over the past decade Green Human Resource Management (GHRM) has emerged as a growing field of conceptual and empirical work both within, and separate from, the broader topic of Sustainable HRM. As such, we believe it is an opportune time to provide an overview of the Green HRM literature up to 2020, together with a critical consideration of Green HRM into the future. Representing the first meta‐review in the Green HRM field, we surmise key aspects of Green HRM research emerging over the previous decade. We conclude by presenting an exploration of how Green HRM may evolve in the future, and pose the following question: With a myriad of implications from COVID‐19 on business survival and society in general, how will this affect the development of Green HRM? Is it headed towards a roadblock, or revitalisation? Key points A meta‐review of Green HRM literature demonstrates an established through to emerging field of research developed on empirical research over the past decade. Reviews provided three important outcomes for Green HRM – identification of key literature, proposed conceptual frameworks and identified research gaps. Green HRM provides a key driver aligning organisations towards sustainable outcomes. Further work is required including empirical studies in developing countries and application of rigorous research designs. The implications of the COVID‐19 pandemic are likely to have ramifications on the adoption and practice of Green HRM.
