During a period when demand for the FT’s climate-related journalism is heightened, the initiative applies to all visitors to ft.com globally and aims to inform new audiences with FT reporting on climate change, say the publishers.
The FT is publishing extensive coverage of the COP26 summit, including on-the-ground reporting from Glasgow from journalists including environment correspondent Leslie Hook, climate reporter Camilla Hodgson and Scotland correspondent Mure Dickie, as well as columnists Gillian Tett, Pilita Clark and Moral Money editor Simon Mundy.
A 24-page special report on ‘Managing Climate Change’ is now available, featuring reporting and opinion pieces on topics including: global policy; corporate action; investment; reporting from areas hard-hit by the effects of climate change; the impact of individual action or ‘people power’; and a special section on water and oceans. FT data-visualisation, audio and specialist title teams will also publish a range of content about the summit.
Emiliya Mychasuk, the FT’s climate editor, said: “COP26 is a pivotal global moment. By opening up access to the FT’s climate content, we hope to give new readers the perspective to understand events at the summit and what decisions made in Glasgow mean for the planet’s future. FT climate coverage has continued to grow in popularity, with page views more than doubling since the launch of Climate Capital in January this year.”
FT journalists will share highlights and selected stories on Twitter using #FTfreetoday.
