An Overview of Challenges and Research Avenues for Green Business Process Management

Dries Couckuyt (UGent)
Author
Abstract
Business organizations acknowledge the importance of Information Systems (IS) to cope with their responsibility in environmental degradation. The problem with current IS contributions is that the crucial role of process-centered techniques is often ignored. Moreover, a common understanding of environmental sustainability is missing. In response, this paper introduces Green Business Process Management (BPM) which focuses on the ecological impact of business processes. The concept of a circular economy is introduced to concretize environmental sustainability at the organizational level. Following the design-science paradigm, this paper provides a work plan to examine the theoretical and practical evidence on Green BPM instruments. The research methods we propose are a systematic literature review (SLR), expert panels, case studies and field-testing.
