NYTimes.com launches environment and energy section

February 27, 2009

NYTimes.com launched a new energy and environment section, the latest in a series of The Times’s online business news expansion efforts.

The section will include online-only material, video and interactive features as well as articles from the print edition. Among the journalists whose work will be featured are Tom Zeller Jr., editor of the Green Inc. blog; Kate Galbraith, energy reporter; James Kanter, correspondent for the International Herald Tribune; and Andrew C. Revkin, environmental reporter.

Readers will also have unique access to the latest news and headlines from Environment & Energy Publishing’s ClimateWire and Greenwire, which will be featured as part of the new section.

“NYTimes readers understand that energy and environmental decisions made by the private sector, government and consumers are also crucial economic decisions,” said Larry Ingrassia, business editor, The New York Times, in a statement. “This new section will keep our readers abreast of both the business and the social impact of those choices.”

The enhancement is part of The Times’s expansion of its online business coverage that began last summer with an enhanced markets section, including new tools for investors and 6,000 company topic pages; a new economy section, followed by an enhanced technology section with expanded coverage of venture capital and enterprise computing; a suite of new features to the personal technology section; and a relaunched personal finance section, Your Money, in January.

Later this year, The Times will introduce major expansions of its small business and personal technology sections.
