This study examines the role of information systems (IS) on environmental sustainability by gaining an understanding of how benefits may be realized from using IS in a green context (a particular IS, regional mesonet (RM) equipped with information-and communication-based technologies and a comprehensive information system) through the use of duel approaches: a survey (214 respondents) and a case study (six interviews of stakeholders of a RM). Our results provide evidence how IS use contributes to different goals at different levels of sustainability and advance knowledge of utilizing IS for providing actual as well as anticipated benefits to sustainability. In addition, our findings provide suggestions on how successful IS might be used to further induce actions and advance goals of environmental sustainability that can contribute to energy policy-making.
