There is universal realisation of the long term effects of human and business activities on the natural environment. Given the pace and magnitude of environmental deterioration, we are all under increasing pressure to engage in ecologically sustainable practices in addition to pursuing economical and social outcomes. In this context, SIGGreen, a Special Interest Group of the Association for Information Systems (AIS) was formed. The impact and the role of Information Systems (IS) in ecological sustainability have emerged as critical issues. IS academics and practitioners are presented with opportunities to educate, investigate and provide solutions not only to the problem of reducing the ecological footprint of IS but also how the innovative use of IS can transform and reduce the environmental impact of individuals, organisations and society and thus provide leadership in sustainability. This SIGGreen workshop will explore the development, impact and role of IS in sustainability initiatives.
In 2010 and 2012 SIGGreen held programs of activities,each of which included a virtual event and pre-Conference Workshop (ICIS2010 and ECIS2012), to which papers on the general topic of Green IS were submitted, presented and published. We used Wikispaces to support these programs (see http://siggreen-icis2010-workshop.wikispaces.com/ and
http://siggreen2012program.wikispaces.com/) From these programs a set of core themes have been identified to guide and stimulate development of the field of Green IS. In order to continue this process of development we will invite submission of abstract on these themes to the ICIS2013 Workshop leading to papers thatwill be added to the existing SIGGreen Proceedings collection on Sprouts, http://sprouts.aisnet.org/view/organization/SIGGreen.html
