ABSTRACT
In recent years, information systems have become increasingly popular for supporting sustainable operations, especially in carbon reduction efforts. Due to the need to minimize carbon emissions and adopt green practices, organizations are increasingly using information systems to achieve these aims. By using e-techniques as a mediator and taking into account the moderating effects of project orientation and project complexity, this quantitative study seeks to clarify the connection between information systems and carbon reduction approaches. e-techniques connect information systems to carbon reduction efforts. The results imply that project emphasis and complexity affect information systems and carbon reduction approaches. To test these hypotheses, 470 Chinese construction companies that use information systems to reduce carbon emissions were studied. Structural equation modeling determined variable relationships and mediating and moderating factors. This quantitative investigation shows that information systems help companies minimize carbon emissions. This suggests that information systems are highly effective for increasing sustainability in this context. It also emerged that electronic procedures mediate the interaction between information systems and carbon-reduction activities. Project direction and complexity operate as a moderating element, affecting the relationship between information systems and carbon reduction initiatives. The study explores how project direction and complexity impact carbon emission reduction information system efficacy.
