Reuters to provide free climate coverage ahead of Earth Day
As Earth Day approaches, Reuters will be providing free climate change news coverage across text, pictures, video and graphics to partners in the ‘Covering Climate Now’ initiative, which was co-founded by Columbia Journalism Review and the Nation.
The climate initiative aims to strengthen the media’s focus on the climate crisis and includes more than 400 news outlets as partners.
As part of the initiative, the news organization will be offering partner publishers with access to its trusted and impartial news on climate change for two weeks leading up to the Earth Day event. Reuters will be covering both new content and solutions-focused archive coverage.
Participants will also be able to access a new online report on Reuters Connect, featuring editorially curated multimedia coverage across a range environmental stories.
“Earth Day represents a significant moment for organizations around the world to shine a light on the climate crisis and its impact on society,” said Sue Brooks, Head of Product Development & Agency Strategy at Reuters. “Providing Reuters trusted and unbiased news free of charge ahead of Earth Day to ‘Covering Climate Now’ partners will make this important issue more accessible to their audiences and draw on Reuters deep coverage to ensure climate change remains on the agenda, even during these difficult times.”
