E&E News is looking for a reporter to cover the corporate side of climate change. We need an enterprising journalist who can identify emerging technologies to lower emissions and spot corporate efforts to overhype their environmental activity. The beat would cover emerging forms of energy, new techniques to reduce emissions and corporate lobbying at a minimum.
The beat requires a mix of hard-hitting daily news stories and enterprise pieces. The ideal candidate will be able to navigate the Securities and Exchange Commission, corporate filings and lobbying databases. This is a big-picture beat, and we're looking for a reporter who can write confidently about the role businesses play in the context of a global challenge. Database experience is a plus.
This is a position with Climatewire, a proven source of cutting-edge news on climate change. We break stories on the Trump administration and go on location for deep dives into the effects of rising temperatures and society's response. We cover politics, science, adaptation and environmental policy like nobody else.
