The Financial Times launches Climate Capital
Today the Financial Times launches Climate Capital, a dedicated new editorial offering on FT.com. Edited by our newly appointed climate editor Emiliya Mychasuk and led by award-winning journalist Leslie Hook, Climate Capital puts the climate change story at the heart of our journalism and our newsroom.
In today’s world, climate change is part of almost every major story across finance, business, markets, politics and more. With FT’s unique strength and global access to an international reporting network, Climate Capital will provide our subscribers with the perspective needed to identify the most important emerging risks and opportunities for their businesses.
In 2019 the Financial Times launched the New Agenda, which places the FT at the forefront of the global debate about the disruption of established corporate models and what should come next. Whilst the FT has encouraged our senior business audience to embark on a journey to reset capitalism, The FT’s New Agenda is also driving the company’s overall mission to produce informative, actionable content related to climate change, and this mission will extend to the community and network that we create around the Climate Capital hub.
The FT’s editor Roula Khalaf said “This is the big story of our age, and one we already cover exceptionally well. But we can and want to do more. We want to be the go-to place for stories on green investing, clean technologies, climate finance and the impact of climate change on banks, insurers, industry, accountants and central banks. To that end, the new climate vertical will combine our considerable reporting expertise with new editing and data functions”.
