Business modeling is not new and has had substantial impacts on the way businesses are planned and operated these days. Although 'E-business' and 'Sustainability' are the two current major global trends but surprisingly none of the e-business modeling ideas covers the sustainability aspects of the business. Researchers are introducing 'Green IT/ICT' concept lately but none of them clearly explains how those concepts will be used by the e-business modeling ideas. Recently, companies are successfully using QFD as a powerful tool in various fields that addresses strategic and operational decisions in businesses.
