The paper seeks to investigate, how system dynamics modeling can be supportive for green IT management. The behavior of the green IT management under study is analyzed through a simulation model based on the principles of the system dynamics methodology. The simulation model can be helpful as an experimental tool, which can be used to evaluate Green IT strategies ('what-if' analysis) using total environmental indicators as measure of strategy effectiveness. SAP's sustainability development solutions further illustrate the applicability of the developed methodology, while providing additional intuitively sound insights.
