Expanding our environment coverage
When the Reuters.com editorial and business teams met last year to frame our priorities for 2009, one of the ideas that most excited us was an expansion of our environment section. Our environment correspondents around the world were already ramping up their coverage of the business of clean technology, anticipating increased demand for news about how companies were addressing the challenges of climate change and pollution. This was before the election of President Obama and the promise of economic stimulus money for environmental projects.
So the timing felt right when we relaunched our Environment section as Green Business last week. You’ll still find all the news that was on the old page, from correspondents such as Oslo-based Alister Doyle and Peter Henderson in San Francisco. But we’ve added more financial content and news from partners with complementary coverage.
Here’s a quick tour of the page:
1: Business news from correspondents such as Nichola Groom, who covers alternative energy out of Los Angeles.
2: Featured stories from our partners GreenBiz.com, Matter Network, Wired, Earth2Tech and IDG.
3: The Reuters Global Green Portfolio, an index of green stocks with a related blog and discussion group.
4: General environment news. Here’s where you’ll find the news from the old Environment page.
5: Green Business Topics: News from our partners divided into 10 themed sections.
In addition, you’ll find links in the right-hand column to our Environment blog, environment video channel and the Thomson Reuters Carbon Community. Let us know in the comments if there’s anything else you’d like to see. We value your feedback.
