Organizations across the world today face similar problems, thus, solutions to these problems could also be re-used across many organizations. Climate change is one such common problem to organizations, where any solution implemented by one could be re-used by many others. These re-usable solutions could be Enterprise Architecture Patterns, but there is a lack of guidance on how to use them in practice. This study proposes an extension to the commonly used TOGAF, to better leverage these reusable solutions. Thus, this enables organizations using this framework to enhance it with Enterprise Architecture Patterns. As part of the proposed methodology, re-usable patterns supporting sustainable characteristics are built. The resulting methodology is validated with an expert panel, gathering positive comments.
