Software practitioners' adoption of sustainable practices is beneficial to the society, climate and humanity. Existing approaches mainly focus on achieving sustainability when software practitioners develop software. Thus this paper contributes to sustainability research by presenting a model that offers an understanding of how software practitioners can adopt sustainable practices when they utilize software applications in software process. Findings from this paper show how Green practices can be diffused by software practitioners when they utilize software application in software organizations.
