Environment News Service (ENS) is the original international daily wire service of the environment. Established in 1990 by Editor in Chief Sunny Lewis and Managing Editor Jim Crabtree, the company is independently owned and operated under the direction of the founders.
Environment News Service exists to provide late-breaking news of the environment from across the United States and around the world.
Because ignorance leads to degradation of Earth’s ecosystems and knowledge can result in planetary health, ENS staff and correspondents strive to provide fact-based news presented without bias.
ENS covers issues and events that affect the environment: natural disasters, politics, legislation, conferences, demonstrations, legal action, international agreements, sustainable development, climate change, energy, health, water, food, air quality, oceans and marine life, land use, forests, wildlife, toxics, waste and recycling, transportation, finance and the built environment.
In addition to being reporters, ENS contributors often have expertise in fields such as law, economics or public health.
ENS often covers emerging issues long before other news outlets as many news sources contact ENS well in advance of public announcements and work closely with us on breaking developments.
As a result, ENS has won four Project Censored awards, given by the California-based media research project for news published ahead of the media curve.
ENS news reports are indexed by Dow Jones Factiva, and thousands of websites feature Environment News Service reports.
With the belief that well-informed people are the best guarantee of democracy, the Environment News Service exists to provide late-breaking news of the environment from across the United States and around the world.
With the wish to spotlight environmental situations everywhere on Earth, ENS encourages journalists from around the world to contribute their reports.
With the conviction that ignorance is responsible for degradation of Earth’s ecosystems and knowledge can result in planetary health, ENS strives to provide news that is factual and presented without bias.
