THE Times and The Sunday Times have launched the new Times Earth editorial channel.
Times Earth is a new digital hub for all news about our planet, climate change, sustainability problems, initiatives and solutions.
It is a place for Times journalists to report on engaging stories, research and studies from around the world and take a deep dive economic look at sustainability to help readers make better-informed decisions.
Times Earth will also span across print, audio, newsletters and social and will include a new events series with lunchtime ‘Climate Sessions’ and a Climate Summit planned for later in the year.
The Times editor, John Witherow, said: “Times readers are concerned and interested in climate change and our new Times Earth digital channel will showcase our climate and environment coverage.
“The Times and The Sunday Times, with unrivalled reputations for in-depth reporting and analysis, are keen to help highlight and inform our readers on one of the great challenges facing the planet.”
Times Earth follows on from The Times’ Clean Air for All campaign which launched in May 2019 and is calling for legally binding air pollution limits based on World Health Organisation recommendations.
More than a dozen front page stories, several Times leaders and almost 100 other articles have driven momentum to the campaign.
This weekend will also see the final single-use plastic removed from Times products as the final 15 tonnes of magazine polybagging is removed from The Sunday Times in Ireland, completing the titles’ pledge to remove all 250 tonnes of single-use plastic used annually from its products.
The polybags have been replaced by recyclable paper banding, which have created a sustainable space for advertising wrapping the popular weekend magazines.
Times Readers can read all Times Earth content and sign up to The Times’ weekly environment newsletter at www.thetimes.co.uk/environment.
