The Bluestone360 team who developed dotbydot


Dotbydot is a free-to-use collaborative and interactive website that aggregates relevant and useful news, information, knowledge and opinion about the low carbon, green, clean tech and renewable energy sectors and curates the conversations around this.

Imagine the London Tube map but change the colour of the stations to green. The map is a metaphor for the journeys organisations and individuals can take towards a green and sustainable future. Each green station is a stage of that journey - illustrated by research, best practice or case studies - and each Tube line is an economic sector. Where lines intersect there will be richer and more diverse conversations. This is how we are joining the green dots towards a sustainable future.

Dotbydot Limited is based in the South West of England but part of the global conversation about sustainability. The company was formed to encourage the move to a low carbon economy, assist the creation of the South West Marine Energy Park (the UK’s first) and develop a template for the transfer of knowledge from universities to the business sector as a way of maintaining sustainable growth.

Most of the stories and features are written by Alan Qualtrough, former editor-in-chief of the Western Morning News and Plymouth Herald, who previously worked as a reporter and news editor for a number of national newspapers including the Daily Express and Daily Mail.

Occasional national and international stories are supplied by Stuart Qualtrough, who runs

We are building a library of thought-provoking articles on sustainability and economic alternatives from leading South West academics such as Professor Martin Attrill, Director of the Marine Institute, Plymouth University, and Professor David Wheeler, Dean of the Plymouth Business School & Pro Vice-Chancellor, Plymouth University as well as campaigners including Jay Tompt of Totnes Transition Town.
