Abstract

There is growing recognition of the role of Green IS practices (GISP) in mitigating environmental problems. Research indicates that in addition to contributing towards sustainability, GISP has the potential to contribute to organization's bottom line and improve stakeholders' image of the organization. Consequently, there is an upward trend of organizations adopting GISP. However, to realize fully the benefits of GISP, it must be engrained and entrenched into the organizational processes, i.e., GISP needs to be routinized. So far, research on GISP has been limited to one shot adoption decisions while ignoring the process of routinization. Drawing from the literature on structuration and internal market orientation, we examine the impact of organizational meta-structures and internal market Green IS orientation on employee commitment and its subsequent impact on routinization of GISP. Furthermore, addressing the inconsistent findings in the literature, this paper also examines the impact of routinization on tangible and intangible organizational benefits.
