While there has been a proliferation of websites on sustainability in recent years, tochallengethethinking offers some valuable insights into the concept.

The site is targeted at chief executives, managers and environment practitioners, and the homepage is so packed with content that I almost missed its real gem: the video link. The introductory video and the relaxed presentation style of the website’s creator, Dave Stanley, is engaging and naturally leads you to other videos.

The website contains several video briefings to help viewers build a business case for sustainability. It considers conventional lines, such as energy savings, resource efficiency, future security and environmental security, and there is some emphasis on the more social aspects of sustainability.

The site’s blog posts also provide a sustainability perspective on government policies.

The challenge with this site is that many of videos are only accessible directly through an alternative YouTube page, if this was resolved its content would go a long way to improve thinking on sustainability.
