Sustainability is without doubt one of the most important challenges of our time. How can we
develop prosperity, without compromising the life of future generations? Companies are
integrating concepts of sustainability in their marketing, corporate communications, annual
reports and in their actions.
Information systems (IS) provide organizations with the ability to change and improve business
processes to better support sustainable practices. Therefore, IS can make a contribution to the
sustainable development of organizations. However, the organizational change aspects of „Green
IS‟ are covered only marginally in literature. This paper aims to contribute the debate on Green
IS, by highlighting the role of sustainability in the organizational process of implementing IS and
organizational change resulting from IS. Based on a literature review of the concepts of
sustainability, and the role of IS in sustainability, we will apply the concepts of sustainability to
IS projects and create a checklist for developing sustainability indicators in IS projects.
