Since The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) emerged in 2015, they have become a guide for managing present sustainability challenges. How- ever, we have limited knowledge about inter-organizational goal setting for dig- ital transformations towards sustainable development. Recognizing this short- coming, we report an in-depth case study of an inter-organizational digital trans- formation and the challenges of setting goals towards promoting progress on SDGs in environmental assessments. An environmental assessment is an obliga- tory procedure securing environmental concerns are considered before a decision is made, either for individual projects or public plans and programs. From ana- lyzing the activities in environmental assessments, we outline their distinct digi- talization goals and the stakeholders’ associated experiences. These findings ex- tend preliminary research on what drives digital transformation in environmental assessment and highlight environmentally responsible activities where infor- mation systems can make a difference. The paper discusses how these findings show a further need for research on the digital transformation of environmental assessment.
