In the fast changing global business, green information systems (IS) have emerged as an integral part of business strategy. Many business organizations have adopted green IS and are in the process of its implementation. This research-in-progress paper identifies factors for the adoption of green IS practices in the organizational context. We present research methodology for initial pilot study using the following adoption factors using Technology-Organization-Environment (TOE) theory framework: relative advantage/usefulness, compatibility, complexity, observability, technology competence/IT Support, organizational context/ corporate social responsibility, environmental context/partners readiness, cost involved, competitive pressure, top management attitude, government framework (strategy/policy), customer/stakeholders/investors attitude, and skilled manpower.
