Issues about ICT, sustainability and ethics are very closely related. Allthree areas are interconnected, meaning that handling a problem belonging to onearea leads most often to the need to discuss issues from the other two areas. Theproblems in each area are very similar in nature. Ready-made answers cannot befound and any solution proposed is easily contested. Not only ethics but also ICTand sustainability have a strong connection to values. With classical and modernphilosophy as a foundation, and based on psychological research on ethical decisionmaking,it is suggested to focus on the way to take care of issues rather than onnormative or ideological aspects. It appears that the method used to handle problemsin these areas is of crucial importance; and this is also common to all of them.
