What They Do
Marketplace Radio launched its sustainability desk in 2005 with initial funding from The Kendeda Fund. Over the past seven years, Marketplace Radio has experimented with different strategies for researching and reporting news that explores how natural resources are valued, used, and exploited in the name of commerce. The sustainability desk has learned that thematically focused stories help build listener knowledge over time and allow for more nuanced storytelling.
What We Love
Marketplace Radio delivers consistent and creative reporting to an audience that is focused on finance, but that also needs to know more about climate change, pollution, and protection of natural resources. Marketplace is one of the only places to turn to for news on how finance and economics are impacted by sustainability issues.
