About this book

​ Green Business Process Management – Towards the Sustainable Enterprise" consolidates the global state-of-the-art knowledge about how business processes can be managed and improved in light of sustainability objectives. Business organizations, a dominant part of our society, have always been a major contributor to the degradation of our natural environment, through the resource consumption, greenhouse emissions, and wastage production associated with their business processes. In order to lessen their impact on the natural environment, organizations must design and implement environmentally sustainable business processes. Finding solutions to this organizational design problem is the key challenge of Green Business Process Management. This book- discusses the emerging challenges of designing “green” business processes,- presents tools and methods that organizations can use in order to design and implement environmentally sustainable processes, and- provides insights from cases where organizations successfully engaged in more sustainable business practices. The book is of relevance to both practitioners and academics who are interested in understanding, designing, and implementing “green” business processes. It also constitutes a valuable resource for students and lecturers in the fields of information systems, management, and sustainable development.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book aims to introduce the reader to the new and evolving role that business process management (BPM) can play in helping firms become sustainable enterprises. … The book contains 13 chapters that are grouped in three parts, ‘Foundations and Directions,’ ‘Tools and Methods,’ and ‘Cases and Examples.’ All 13 are standalone pieces and can be read in any order. … In my professional judgment, people unfamiliar with green IT and sustainability literature could learn something new … .” (Don Chand, ACM Computing Reviews, March, 2013)
