This study offers a theoretical explanation of the underlying factors for employee’s engagement in Green IT. The proposed model examines engagement in sustainable IT practices from the perspective of employee’s adoption of GIT and suggests the role of attitude in enabling such. Drawing on the belief–action–outcome (BAO) framework, this study delineates the micro-and macro-level factors underlying the formation of employee’s beliefs and attitude toward GIT, which in turn leads to the adoption of GIT. The proposed model contributes to the extant literature in GIT adoption by suggesting the role of personal competence, and organizational structure and culture in employee’s engagement in environmental sustainability initiatives.
