Track Description

Information systems (IS) are the key change agent of the digital age. By increasing global information processing capacity and global connectivity across both physical and digital entities, information systems provide ample opportunities to address the major problems of our century, including climate change.

First, IS can help individuals, organizations, and our society understand the environmental impact of their practices, thus preparing the ground for reducing the use of resources and energy, avoiding waste and emissions, and implementing the circular economy. Second, IS empower organizations and networks of organizations to implement more environmentally sustainable business processes and supply chains. Third, by connecting physical and digital components, IS provide the foundation for creating increasingly smart (inter)networked systems, such as for smart cities, smart grids, and smart mobility. Recent advancements in artificial intelligence and autonomous systems as well as the increasing prevalence of platform-based ecosystems promise to further accelerate these developments.
