Abstract: The environmental issues had drawn attention from governments, societies as well as business organisations. Indeed, organisations have put effort on challenging the environment issues. One of the most important logical efforts that organisations put to deal with environmental issues is Green IT which, in turn, leads to enhancement in the organisation's performance and improvement. Using Green IT by organisations will be advantageous to the society. There is plethora of research on Green IT in organisations and the adoption of Green IT from managers' pro-environmental intention was only explored by a small number of them. The norm activation theory and the theory of planned behaviour have been used in this study. The study provides the available recent knowledge about information system which is necessary to monitoring the decision maker's intention for adoption of Green IT and sustainability by developing a research model which recognises the important aspects for Green IT adoption.

Keywords: adoption; Green IT; Green IS; norm activation model; theory of planned behaviour; TPB.
