Today’s software organizations have to operate in an environment which is highly networked. With this it has an increase concern not only for integrating various technologies but also for economic, environmental and social aspects. Environmental factors are considered to be very influential while performing requirement engineering (RE) process in global software development (GSD) paradigm. Our focus in this study is towards environmental aspects of RE in GSD paradigm where the teams are geographically distributed from each other. In specific we want to explore the environmental factors which may impact the software RE process in GSD paradigm. The information used for this identification is taken from the literature by performing systematic literature review (SLR). In order to have unique identification of each of the environmental factor, Grounded theory’s constant comparison and memoing steps are adopted. The initial list of environmental factors may leads to progressive enhancement for assisting in RE activities in GSD paradigm.
