Abstract

In this paper, we discuss historical periods and recent research initiatives and theoretical approaches to Green Information Systems and Technologies (GIS/IT). Having observed that the GIS/IT history is an insufficiently investigated topic, we used Information Systems History (ISH) research methods, such as periodization, contextualization and generalization. With the help of exploring existing variety of theories and initiatives, we provide clarification of evolution of the GIS/IT concept and explore areas in industry and research that are currently lacking insight. Our methodological diversification of the GIS/IT research assists not only in summarizing the current state of the GIS/IT but also in encouraging ideation and cooperation of the academics from different fields to produce novel outlooks on the GIS/IT.
