Our mission is simple: to provide a global perspective on environmental issues, and to promote thought, discussion, and awareness among our readers, our Press Members, our Editorial Affiliates and the other customers we service.

ENN's editorial team publishes both original content, sourced affiliate news from our 44 Editorial Affiliates and gathers and filters articles from a variety of other news streams. Our core sources include major wire services plus stories from numerous partners, contributors, freelance & citizen journalists, and research associates from around the world.

When ENN was started over twenty years ago, it was our intention that our service would bring attention to the present and future environmental issues facing the health of our planet and the people it supports. Now, in a world where these issues have migrated to the mainstream, we are looking forward and asking: what more can we do to help?

ENN has a serious editorial mission. Our mission is to inform, educate, enable and create a platform for global environmental action.

As a result, our readers are top environmental leaders from government, business and educators, as well as a broad spectrum of 'intellectually curious' citizens.

While in the past we were mainly aggregators of environmental news, ENN has become more than just a collection of content. It is rapidly becoming a collection of resources, teachers, experts and tools that provide objective information and knowledge about the increasingly complex field of environmental science.

This distinction is important. As readers drown in too much information, then the sifting, sorting and organizing skills of the staff and editors at ENN becomes more and more critical.

As part of this solution, ENN has, under new management, just entered into a variety of new partnerships with highly experienced environmental experts and editorial affiliates to bring to ENN a greater balance and depth of understanding about complex environmental issues, as well as front line reporting, that will be unlike that available to any other environmental news organization.

I hope you will take a minute and explore the new ENN and get to know our services, meet our Partners and make use of what we feel is a critical information service for anyone who cares about improving our world.

The Environmental News Network gathers, sifts, selects and publishes environmental news from a variety of trusted global sources, large and small 24 hours a day. We recognize that the planet is in a historic state of rapid transformation moving into a critical period of crisis, change and opportunity. With this website we aim daily to deliver news and information that supports better environmental decisions and progressive coherent change.

ENN seeks and publishes stories critical to understanding the growing planetary crisis. We spotlight problems and solutions, and lots in between. We work to identify what's broken and celebrate what and how things are getting fixed. We present information to, we hope, support evolutionary change. We consider our core mission seeding sound environmental decisions and understandings with high-quality, timely information. ENN is committed to a free unrestricted flow of information, presented with clarity, published quickly. We consider this fundamental to good decisions and the protection and rehabilitation of the planet on every level.

ENN's reputation is built on years of consistently delivering solid stories contributed by trusted sources. Our sources are a broad range of people, agencies, groups and institutions who daily generate important news and gather news stories from their corner of the E universe. We partner with contributors who present news with balance and perspective. Each day we review hundreds of stories from hundreds of sources to select the most important from thousands of possibilities to publish daily, adhering always to the tenets of quality journalism. We post stories as quickly as possible, often within minutes of original publication, starting before sunrise and well into the evening hours. We believe that the sooner you know, and the more you know, the better. We strive to publish a diverse mix of stories that accurately reflect the day's events, create a context that gives both in-depth understanding and an awareness of 'tipping point' stories that portend important emerging trends. We seek the day's events and beyond, looking for the innovations and innovators, the products, the science, the thought-leaders and paradigm shifters and the solutions that will help you decide how to shape our world and re-make our planet in new and better ways.

ENN's ultimate publishing goal is to inform, educate and inspire its audience on a daily basis, to seek and through trusted information initiate solutions to our global environmental problems and lend support to creating a sustainable, problem-free future for coming generations. We feel strongly, that given good clear news and information, the reader will find his and her own way.
