Description

Green information system (GIS) plays an important role in the sustainable development of organizations, especially for those in emerging economy that face both economic and environmental pressures. To fulfill the purpose, employees need to work together on tasks using all kinds of GIS functions such as online collaboration and remote meeting. Researchers study GIS adoption at either the organizational level or the individual level, but few examine such technology-enabled collaboration as a cross-level phenomenon. Extending the belief-action-outcome (BAO) framework, this study investigates the motivation, effort and performance of collaborative GIS use. In particular, there are two aspects of motivation: GIS strategy as extrinsic motivation and GIS belief as intrinsic motivation, as well as two types of performance: tangible environmental performance and intangible green image. Collective GIS effort mediates the relationships between motivation and performance variables. Empirical evidence based on survey observations collected in China supports most hypothesized relationships. The findings provide helpful insights on the best practices to promote the collaborative use of GIS for corporate sustainability.
