While in the past information technol- ogy was mostly seen as a contributor to environmental degradation, recent stud- ies suggest that information systems (IS) can indeed enable sustainable processes, products, and services. Specifically, infor- mation systems are expected to create an impact on individual beliefs about en- vironmental sustainability, enable more sustainable work practices through virtu- alization and remote work, enable orga- nizations to meet compliance imperatives

and social norms, or increase resource ef- ficiency. In this context, notions such as energy informatics or green business pro- cess management have emerged. The IS discipline is thus challenged to explore the potential of information systems to contribute to the betterment of the nat- ural environment by enabling more sus- tainable work practices at individual, or- ganizational, and societal levels.
