Green IT capability and sustainable development

By Rabiah Eladwiah Abdul Rahim and Azizah Abdul Rahman


The concept of Green Information Technology\ud (Green IT) has been widely discussed in recent times,\ud but the question of how a firm can afford to\ud implement Green IT in both IT and other business\ud operations has yet to be examined. In addition, the\ud question of whether Green IT has made any\ud significant contributions towards sustainable\ud development in organizations has not yet been\ud studied. This study attempts to bridge this gap by\ud viewing Green IT capability from the lens of Natural\ud Resource-Based View. The two constructs derived\ud from this theory, namely, as pollution prevention and\ud product stewardship are discussed in this paper. Its\ud application is extended into the IT context with\ud reference to Green IT literature. This occurs among\ud an early review of the utilisation of these constructs\ud particularly for Green IT process management. The\ud implications of the outcome of this study, both for the\ud IS researchers and for the practicing managers, are\ud discussed
