Therefore, the purpose of this research paper is to a carryout a structural literature review approach to review existing techniques applied to achieve sustainability and standards deployed to assist practitioners in implementing and diffusing green practices in CE. Finding from this review indicates that previously applied techniques and standards lacks the capability to support IT practitioners in making green decisions on how to implement and adopt sustainable practice in collaborative enterprise.
