Role-based Eco-info Systems: an Organizational Theoretical View of Sustainable HCI at Work



Primary authors



So far, sustainable HCI has mainly focused on the domestic context, but there is a growing body of work looking at the organizational context. As in the domestic context, these works still rest on psy-chological theories for behaviour change used for the domestic context. We supplement this view with an organizational theory-informed approach that adopts organizational roles as a key element. We will show how a role-based analysis could be applied to uncover information needs and to give em-ployee’s eco-feedback, which is linked to their tasks at hand. We illustrate the approach on a qualita-tive case study that was part of a broader, on-going action research conducted in a German produc-tion company.
