RESUMO:

The increasing scarcity of natural resources, the accelerating pollution of the environment, and the looming threat of global climate change have attracted the interest of IS scholars. The environmental damages have affected the economy and caused social injustice due to the consequences of global warming. Some of the main drivers of global warming are from anthropogenic activities associated with the waste generation. Thus, Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) are change agents in which must have institutionalization of environmental policies to promote research and development of technologies for sustainability. Moreover, the services and infrastructure of HEIs require solutions to manage the waste discarded. Given these needs, green information systems (GIS) would be an alternative to manage waste activities at HEIs reducing the environmental impacts and promoting sustainable development. Nevertheless, some uncertainties towards of the GIS adoption are associated with various obstacles, unknown challenges, and the complex understanding of the relation between technology, organization, and environment. One of the great challenges of environmental action lies in knowing what to do, limiting the ability to develop plans which are able to address such issues. The prior literature does not explore deeply “how” people think and act surrounding of the complex issues into the GIS adoption process. Yet, there is a lack of appropriated theory to understand how individuals make the decision to adopt GIS initiatives. This current research aims to understand the decision-making process to acceptance green information systems initiatives in higher education institutions. It analyzes the phenomenon using the Problem Structuring Methods (PSM), Strategic Options Development and Analysis (SODA), as theoretical lenses in which is based on the construction of cognitive mapping techniques, using the Atlas.ti software. It intends to conduct in-depth interviews performed with individuals of the university involved in the decision process to adopt GIS. Theoretically, the answer to the general question will help scholars to understand the communication process between the individual and natural environment in organizations. It also can help to explain the role of IS in advancing of the environment sustainability. For practitioners, understanding of the dynamics of the decision-making to adopt GIS initiatives may help organizations to increase their potential to adopt innovations related to green technologies. Yet, to increase the ecological awareness of their employees for taking the environment into account in your daily business thinking and decisions as well
