"A survey on cloud-based sustainability governance systems (Emerald Outstanding Paper Award Winner)";
International Journal of Web Information Systems (IJWIS) (invited), Volume 8 (2012), Number 3; 278 - 295.

English abstract:
Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to examine how cloud-based information systems and services can support emerging and future requirements for sustainability governance of facilities.

Design/methodology/approach - The authors present basic elements of cloud-based sustainability governance platforms, conduct a survey of existing industrial platforms and research works, discuss distinguishable and common characteristics of cloud computing platforms for sustainability governance, and give views on future research.

Findings - Cloud computing emerges as a potential candidate for supporting sustainability governance. However, several techniques must be provided in order to support multiple stakeholders, complex analysis and compliance processes.

Research limitations/implications - The number of industrial platforms and research works in the survey is limited, as is information about industrial platforms. Furthermore, industrial platforms are continuously updated, thus some information might be outdated.

Originality/value - There exists no survey for understanding how cloud computing could be used for sustainability governance. The paper not only helps to understand state-of-the-art in using cloud computing for sustainability governance but also discusses main components, stakeholders and requirements for cloud-based sustainability governance platforms.
