Social Equity and Ecological Sustainability: New Framework and Directions for the IS Community

Abstract : Ecological sustainability and social equity are among the United Nations' Millennium Development Goals - but, unfortunately, as the years pass, they are still far from being reached. But concern about these issues has made its way to industry and the IS community. IS play a central role in companies as they are cross-functional and have a strategic role in our current information society. We argue that it is our responsibility, as IS scholars, to dedicate some of our research efforts toward environmental sustainability and to social equity, and that our teaching, our journals and our associations should also address these two objectives. This article proposes a new framework to facilitate the inclusion of both ecological sustainability and social equity concerns within the IS discipline.
