When it comes to the environment, most people want to do the right thing; they just need help in getting there. No one really wants their friends to perceive them to be careless polluters. Businesses do not really want their customers to believe that by buying their products they are destroying the planet we live on. Most people claim that they will pay more for a green product, they just need a little help with the follow through. Information Systems can play a critical role in helping people and business follow through on their good intentions when it comes to the environment. Some of the ways that Information Systems can help us do the right things include efficiency systems, forecasting, reporting and awareness, energy efficient home computing, and behavior modification. This article calls on professors, educators, and citizens of the world to develop and use information systems to help people do the right thing.
