Resumen

There is little evidence of the role of resources and capabilities related to information systems and technologies (IS/IT) in the adoption of proactive environmental practices in firms. The purpose of this study is to explore the influence of organisational and IS/IT resources and capabilities on the adoption of proactive environmental practices as well as the ultimate effect on environmental performance. By conducting covriance-based structural equation modelling (CB-SEM) to a multi-sample of 129 small, medium and large firms operating in different industrial sectors in Bogotá, Colombia, we found that organisational and IS/IT resources shape the development of capabilities for continuous improvement, stakeholder management, IS/IT support to general functional activities and IS/IT support to environmental management. Further, firm capabilities lead to the adoption of proactive environmental practices, which in turn, determine improvements in environmental performance. Findings support the relevance of IS/IT resources and capabilities in driving pro-environmental behaviour in firms.
