Sustainable IS Initialization Through Outsourcing: A Theory-Based Approach
Environmentally friendly and sustainable initiatives have emerged as important topics in IS research over the last few years. However the existing discussions and scientific contributions in this field are mainly based on case studies and empirical surveys. Less research is firmly based on existing IS theories. Furthermore, little research has been undertaken to analyze the contribution of outsourcing to environmental sustainability. This paper takes a theory-based approach to link outsourcing with sustainable IS to examine the possibilities of organizations engaging in green and sustainable initiatives.
