Abstract in another language

The importance of digitalization and sustainability has grown significantly in recent years, and organ-izations must consider both aspects when developing new products and services. However, identifying ideas that align with digital and sustainability goals remains challenging. This study addresses this gap by developing a digital sustainability-oriented innovation evaluation framework following the design science research paradigm. By conducting a systematic literature review and 13 expert interviews, we identified 13 criteria that depict the unique characteristics of digital sustainability-oriented innovations, particularly relevant at the front-end of innovation. The criteria are structured within a framework that helps practitioners to evaluate and select innovations that align with digital and sustainability objectives. Thus, it simultaneously promotes digital and sustainable development. By bridging the gap between digital and sustainability innovation evaluation, our research contributes to the organizations' twin transformation, combines two distinct research streams, and offers practical guidance for organizations embracing digital sustainability-oriented innovations.
