Abstract:


Unsustainable practices of (large) corporations damage the environment, harm society, and can cause severe reputational as well as economic damage to the company. An enterprise sustainability risk information system can help in order to manage respective risks proactively. For the design of such a system, several domain-specific requirements need to be considered such as distinctive source heterogeneity, the need for push&pull information retrieval, the integration of different temporal scopes and the provision of stakeholder-specific data views. This paper evaluates four enterprise integration patterns with regard to their applicability in the sustainability domain. Finally, it proposes an architecture which combines both the message oriented and the shared database approach in order to meet the domain-specific requirements.
