United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (UN SDG) 12.6 aims to “encourage companies, especially large and transnational companies, to adopt sustainable practices and to integrate sustainability information into their reporting cycle” [43]. Using Design Science Research, GReenstreets Integrated Packaging Sustainability reporting system (“GRIPS”) is an expository artefact built using the BAO design theory for green information systems (Green IS) (c.f. Recker) [34]. The artefact aims to support organizations in overcoming sustainability challenges by providing information to help them make effective decisions around packaging sustainability and to facilitate the move from eco-efficiency to eco-effectiveness practices. This study adds to practice by helping companies to act, measure and monitor the move towards eco-effective packaging. It adds to research by providing an expository artefact based on the design theory for Green IS proposed by Recker.
