Abstract/Summary Current market demands and government legislation force farmers to review their environmental processes and performance. Environmental processes can be implemented effectively by using Environmental Management Systems (EMSs). Therefore effective use of EMSs is critical for the achievement of environmental performance. However, the role of EMSs in achieving environmental and organizational performance, from an information systems context is yet to be investigated. Such an investigation requires the use of an effective instrument for reliability. The absence of an effective instrument in Australian agriculture triggered this study to develop an instrument for the investigations. Consequently, the objective of this research is to investigate the role of EMSs in environmental and organizational performance from an information systems context. The study could help explain the relationship between the EMS and the environmental and organizational performance from an Information Systems context. Furthermore, this study could indicate the necessary type of Information Systems resources and environmental capabilities in achieving environmental performance. Such findings are expected to contribute to further development of EMS applications. The users of EMS will benefit immensely as they can focus on the necessary applications of resources and capabilities.
