Quotation Winkler, Till, Spiekermann-Hoff, Sarah. 2020. Human Values as the Basis for Sustainable Information System Design.




Information systems (IS) play an increasing role for individual well-being, for the environment, and for society at large. Considering sustainability in IS development is therefore becoming paramount. However, companies today associate sustainability with extra cost and burden on their operations. As a result, many view sustainability more as a demand and a challenge rather than an opportunity. In this article, we argue that companies should rethink this attitude, as both sustainability and a business model can be understood as deeply rooted in human values.
