Quartz hires its first environmental reporter
Zoe Schlanger has joined Quartz as an environmental reporter, based in New York.
She will have a special focus on developing coverage of climate change and environmental policy. Her reporting will be included in Quartz obsessions such as “Energy Shocks” and “The Sea” as the first environmental reporter at Quartz.
Schlanger was previously a senior reporter at Newsweek, where she got national pickup on her coverage of Detroit air pollution and won an award for a story on the threat of overpopulation.
She has written for a number of other outlets including The New York Times, Guernica, The Nation, Maddowblog, Gothamist, Guernica, and Talking Points Memo.
She has a bachelor’s from NYU in politics and environmental studies and speaks Spanish.
