MS2009-6: Materialising Green IT into Organisational goals

What about a review of opportunities for organisations to support a more sustainable/climate-friendly environment, structured into a "Becoming-more-Green Maturity Framework" (several already exist), in order to materialise and incorporate these Green Maturity levels into actual organisational goals?

See also the following recent Call for Chapter Proposals on Green Finance and Sustainability: Environmentally-Aware Business Models and Technologies. To be published by IGI Global:

Terms like Green Building, Green Energy, Green Manufacturing, Green Technology, and Low Carbon Practice are often visible in daily lives. Green adoption in business or industry, however, is not smooth. Green is often associated with terms like more capital expenditure and less operation efficiency. Thus, while Green is an important matter, sustainability for Green now has to move beyond environmental concerns to a holistic view, over emerging business models, low carbon and clean technologies, technology access and finance, and policy and regulations."
