Sustainability and Environmental (Performance) Indicators
IT-for-Green aims to make businesses and their processes more environmentally friendly by means of information processing. Currently implemented EMIS do not cope with the requirements from the sustainability debate, because EMIS must already put into action during product development in an environmentally integrated production as well as in strategic decision making and not – as done so far - only as end-of-pipe solution to the mere end of pipe documentation of environmental effects. Thus, great importance to timely recognition of cause-effect relationships has to be given for proactively assessing environmental impact. Significant potential for preventive environmental protection remains otherwise unused.
