Lane, Michael S. and Kolbe, Lutz and Zarnekow, Rudiger (2010) Editorial for special issue of AJIS on green IT/IS (sustainable computing). Australasian Journal of Information Systems, 17 (1). pp. 1-4. ISSN 1449-8618


We are pleased to present this AJIS Special issue on Green IT/IS (Sustainable Computing). There are five papers published in this special issue of the AJIS which reflect the diversity of this emerging and important area of research in Information Systems. Environmental sustainability is one of if not the most important challenge facing organisations and society in the 21st century. Information systems and information technology have a major role to play in both reducing its environmental impact and providing the systems and technological innovation to reduce the environmental impact of organisations. Currently there is a lack of rigorous empirical studies which are theory and evidence based to provide a sound basis for understanding IT green best practices and how these can be best adopted in organisations. This special issue of the AJIS contributes to this current gap in the knowledge concerning green IS and IT with five empirical research papers which examined five different aspects of green IS and IT.
