New Green Website Shares Success Stories

A non-profit website called GreenVu has launched a forum-based platform that allows users to upload content to the site and arrange the data by a specific sector.

Unlike a news-based site which offers opinion, interviews, consumer guides and more in addition to the latest updates in green technology, GreenVu will be a deposit of what the organization calls “success stories.” Corporations, investors, customers, researchers, and activists are allowed to upload a variety of different formats to the site, which can be downloaded.

Anything from videos to white papers can be added to the online-bank of eco-friendly content. So far, the site doesn’t have much in the way of academic reports, and a portion of the content is sustainability reports from giant businesses like Walmart, which do highlight progress at least.

If the site can gather a large range of third-party evaluations and research reports from universities and government agencies, then it may become a very useful tool for a variety of readers.
