The environmental impact of doing business becomes an increasingly relevant aspect for organizations, not only because of legal requirements but also because more customers care about environmental influences. Most organizations, however, do not have comprehensive knowledge on how to restructure their business processes accordingly. In previous work we proposed green business process patterns that address the environmental impact explicitly as one possible solution. Beyond those patterns, we now provide environmentally relevant patterns derived from existing patterns of different domains. In this work, we present a set of such patterns related to automated business processes. The identified patterns support stakeholders when analyzing their business processes with respect to the environmental impact and, therefore, supporting green business process reengineering.
