In 2020, Solutions Journalism Network launched its first climate-focused initiative, the Business & Sustainability Initiative. Journalists from 24 newsrooms from around the U.S. created and completed projects that focused attention on responses to climate change and related issues where businesses were a key actor in the solution. The projects ranged from solutions grounded in environmental justice in cities such as Philadelphia and Charlottesville, Virginia to regenerative agriculture in Montana’s Golden Triangle and within the national dairy industry. We invite you to explore collections featuring a sampling of these stories -- as well as the newest stories from the Solutions Story Tracker -- to learn more about how we can move coverage of climate from unsolvable and apocalyptic to rigorous evidence-based journalism that catalyzes communities to take action.
