A Green IS taxonomy

Chapter


Download full-text (Open Access)

Abstract


  • As a specialisation within the field of Information Systems (IS), Green IS encapsulates the responsibility of IS researchers and practitioners towards environmentally sustainable development. There is a growing community of IS scholars who are accepting this responsibility and creating an emerging body of Green IS knowledge over a disparate range of topics. Drawing on the emerging Green IS literature, we propose the following set of 11 categories as a taxonomy of Green IS in an endeavour to stimulate efforts to determine the scope and content of the field.

    • Creating, Managing and Using Information;

    • Supporting and Transforming Human Enterprises;

    • Decision Support for Environmentally Sustainable Development;

    • Green Information Systems Development (ISD);

    • Changing Attitudes and Behaviours;

    • Resource Informatics;

    • Meeting and Collaborating Virtually: Reducing the need to Travel;

    • The Greening of IT;

    • The Connection of Environmental Responsibility to Economic and Social Imperatives;

    • Education: Including Green IS in the Curriculum;

    • Research: Stimulating Innovative Green IS Research.
