They're looking for volunteers to expand their maps. byCycle's mission is to

an interactive online bicycle trip planner
byCycle is based in Portland, Oregon.
I have to include one library site at least. This is a blog called
"Building a Sustainable Future". A conversation blog for the "Building a
Sustainable Future" workshops sponsored by the Kansas State Library and
WebJunction's Rural Library Sustainability (RLS) project.
Building Green: http://www.nrdc.org/buildinggreen/ from the Natural

Finally, two green 'business' sites:
http://www.ceres.org/pub/publication.php?pid=84 downloadable PDF
documents. The *2006 Corporate Governance and Climate Change: Making the
Connection* report includes a 30-page summary report comprised of the
executive summary, the climate governance scoring criteria, the 100 company
scores and sector-specific findings. The report also includes 2- to 3-page
profiles on each of the companies evaluated.
http://www.climatebiz.com/ Businesses interested in improving their
environmental performance will find backgrounders here on such topics as the
business case for climate-friendly policies, establishing targets and
measuring performance, reducing emissions, carbon offsets, etc.
