Several interesting Green IS papers were presented at AMCIS last week in Savannah GA.
Here’s a partial list:
- Extending Enterprise Management Systems: The Case of Energy Management (Richard Rößler, Hannes Schlieter, and Werner Esswein).
- The Quest for Environmental Information – Towards a Mobile Application for GHG Emission Tracking in Meat Production Processes (Hendrik Hilpert, Bjoern Pilarski, and Matthias Schumann).
Learning from Adopters: Critical Factors for Achieving Smart Grid Value, (You Zheng and Jason Dedrick).
It appears that Green IS scholarship is shifting from generalities to specifics, which I think is a good thing as we move out of the nascent stage and the literature slowly matures. We still need more studies that connect IS investment to environmental and financial value (more on that soon).
