Sustainability and responsible resource exposure has become a major issue in everyday life. Government, customers, and increasing social responsibility force more and more organizations to positively optimize their environmental impact towards a better, livable planet. In this paper we propose a four-layered architecture and corresponding four-phased methodology to enable organizations to (1) define ecological characteristics, (2) sense and measure these ecological characteristics, (3) identify, localize and visualize their environmental impact, and (4) help them to develop appropriate adaptation strategies in order to optimize their environmental impact without neglecting the organizationís competitiveness.
