In 2022, we launched a call for papers for a special section on digital innovation for social development and environmental action. The call was motivated by the need for the information systems discipline to move beyond talking about sustainability to taking actions to address important challenges facing society and the planet. Many authors responded to the call and we are pleased to present the fruits of their labors. In this introduction to the special section, we discuss the motivations for the special section, explain how the special section came together, highlight key points of interest in the eight papers that make up the special section, and reflect on future directions for information systems research.
