    Abstract

    The paper examines the role of online resources for environmental technology management (ETM) learning by examining major influential websites, such as that of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development and the International Institute for Sustainable Development. It analyses from a pedagogical perspective the role of the Internet presence of the global business and institutional communities in promoting and facilitating the management of environment technologies. The analysis suggests that most of the websites for ETM include resources, but do not provide opportunity or encourage active online learning. Learning support and learning tasks should be an integral part of website design in order to create real impact and change existing perceptions and practices.
