The continued growth in the use of Information Technology (IT) in business and personal life has drawn attention to its environmental and social effects. IT organizations are becoming aware that they have to take up their responsibility by thinking seriously about sustainable Information Systems (IS). While measures for using computing resources efficiently have received considerable attention, the topic of sustainability in IS management is still lacking theoretical and practical foundation. As a contribution to the ongoing discussion of Green IT, the purpose of this paper is to apply the concept of sustainability into the field of IS management using practical concepts such as the balanced scorecard and the maturity model.
