The FT’s credible and thoughtful approach to covering climate change helps subscribers with their understanding of a topic on which there is already a huge amount of competing information available.
Climate Graphic: Explained is a new weekend newsletter that helps to cut down on that noise by providing insight and analysis into the most topical climate data of the week.
Introducing Climate Graphic: Explained
The FT launched its Climate Capital hub in order to draw on the full extent of its editorial network, including video, audio and data teams, to cover one of the defining stories of our time. Subscribers really value the ability of the FT to connect its climate change reporting across regions and industry verticals, as well as make sometimes fairly complex concepts more accessible.
The popular climate graphic of the week article that’s published on Climate Capital at the end of each week, as well as on the back page of the international edition of the FT Weekend newspaper, uses data visualisation to inform readers’ understanding of everything from weather patterns to renewable energy prices.
However, it was evident from interactions in the comments section of the graphic, as well as on social media that there was a demand for further explanation and discussion about the data.
The new Climate Graphic: Explained newsletter tells subscribers just how and why the data was selected and the FT’s specialised climate and data visualisation journalists offer their understanding behind the concepts in a way that’s easy to digest.
The newsletter is sent to subscribers each Sunday by mid-morning UK and EU time (or before breakfast in the US and afternoon in Asia).
Who should read it?
Climate change is a story that impacts everyone and as such, Climate Graphic: Explained has been designed to appeal to a wide range of FT readers from school students to professionals working in any industry sector.
Anyone who is looking to inform their understanding of climate change and its potential impact on society, industries, clients or the markets will want to make sure they’re reading it every week.
The FT’s reporting is comprehensive and is instrumental in navigating the complexities of the shipping industry. The FT helps me understand what’s happening below the surface and I appreciate the FT’s deep analysis of the industry. Currently, there is a huge focus on climate change so I’m finding a lot of value in the FT’s coverage.Marine Director, Stephenson Harwood
