Abstract

The main goal of this article is to link Green Information Systems (Green IS) and Green Information Technology (Green IT) to the overall sustainability topic. Therefore, the authors provide a taxonomy in the form of a matrix to relate the relevant concepts to each other. The quest is to identify missing relationships and establish concepts relationships. Papers from six major journals and one conference between 2006 and 2010 were examined in order to shed light on the relationship matrix. The article delivers definitions, insights into usage of terminology and existing boundaries and links amongst definitions. Besides the comprehensive overview, the authors were able to identify new links between the relevant terms. This was done by reversing given relationship definitions between the relevant terms and by using analogies.
