Abstract: Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to utilize the existing theories and knowledge surrounding IS evaluation and Green IT/IS investments to develop a conceptual model for helping decision-makers to overcome and reduce the impacts from Green IT/IS investment related to cost overruns or under-optimized budgets. Design/Methodology/Approach – The paper is discursive, based on the analysis and synthesis of literature pertaining to IS evaluation, Green IT/IS adoption and Sustainable/Green/CSR within an aviation context. Gaps in the preceding research have been identified, and a conceptual model is proposed. Additionally, further research and a methodology are suggested. Findings – The paper proposes a conceptual model that can identify factors including external factors derived from institutional theory, internal organizational factors and a list of indirect costs associated with Green IT/IS investments for an aviation organization. Research Limitations/Implications – As a conceptual paper, the study is limited to literature, identifying gaps and proposing a model. The paper recommends further empirical validation of the proposed conceptual model. Practical Implications – The conceptual model is helpful for decision-makers within the aviation industry to enhance their understanding of the identification and management of indirect costs within the aviation context, which results in effective management of Green IT/IS indirect costs. Originality/Value – The paper fills gaps in the knowledge of IS evaluation, Green IT/IS adoption within aviation context through helping decision makers to understand, identify and manage the associated indirect costs.
