Sustainability governance for resource consumption by humans, such as Green-House Gas (GHG) and electricity consumption in facilities, is a complex issue that requires extensible platforms to manage and analyze multiple types of data over the time. In this paper, the authors will examine how cloud-based information systems and services can support emerging and future requirements for sustainability governance, in particular, of facilities. Their analysis is based on real-world cloud platforms and research initiatives that can be used to support and manage stakeholders, data, processes, and applications for sustainability governance. Based on that, distinguishable and common characteristics of cloud computing platforms for sustainability governance will be identified as well as the differences among cloud-based sustainability governance platforms with general-purposed cloud platforms will be provided.
