Green Business Process Management

Towards the Sustainable Enterprise

Business organisations, a dominant part of our society, have always been a major contributor to the degradation of our natural environment, through the resource consumption, greenhouse emissions, and wastage production associated with their business processes. In order to lessen their impact on the natural environment, organisations must design and implement environmentally sustainable business processes. Finding solutions to this organisational design problem is the key challenge of Green Business Process Management.


The Springer book Green Business Process Management: Towards the Sustainable Enterprise discusses the emerging challenges of designing “green” business processes, presents tools and methods that organisations can use in order to design and implement environmentally sustainable processes, and provides insights from cases where organisations successfully engaged in more sustainable business practices.
