Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper introduces a definition of a responsible and sustainable e-business organization. Today every company has to take into account the growing role of the stakeholders (employees, suppliers, customers, and general society) and this has increased the importance of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Also, they have to expose the impact of their operations on the environment in terms of supply-chain, power consumption and waste management. Both these dimensions are becoming important also for organizations that concentrate their activities on electronic channels. For them, information systems and communication channels (ICT) represent the fundamental infrastructure. This paper concentrates on the questions: how to harmonize the CSR strategy with the important decisions that has to be taken in the computing areas? How to keep aligned the Business Ethics with the Computer Ethics strategies?
