The first objective of the paper is to expose the Green Information Systems (Green IS) management framework comprising the enabling capabilities of Green IS, moderating concepts, and relationships to environmental sustainability. The second objective is to demonstrate the framework’s verification using the focus group method and member checking. The achievement of these objectives establishes that the framework successfully captured the essential Green IS concepts and interrelationships to be relevant for environmental sustainability and that it was trustworthy, credible, relevant, and an original contribution to the academic body of knowledge. The research was empirical, confirmatory, and qualitative. The evidence indicated that the enabling capability of Green IS was prevalent, while there was no significant evidence of a transforming capability. The framework presents verified and salient management focal points for environmental sustainability in the South African banking sector
