CNW Group Launches One-Click Access to Environmental News
TORONTO, Feb. 24 /CNW/ - CNW Group, Canada's largest news and information
distribution service for professional communicators, today announced the
launch of a categorized feed for convenient access to news relevant to
environmental and green interests. With an increasing volume of news being
generated on environmental topics, this new service is expected to be of value
to organizations, media and members of the public interested in matters of
energy conservation, environmental protection, ecological innovation and
general green issues.
A new button has been added to the front page of the CNW website to allow
users to quickly locate and access news releases surrounding environmental
concerns, at www.newswire.ca. Users will be able to browse through the daily
releases or search for specific archived content.
"The environment is an important issue right now, and the volume of news
in this area has been steadily growing," said David Milliken, Senior Vice
President, Media Relations, CNW Group. "With both Earth Hour (March 28, 2009)
and Earth Day (April 22) rapidly approaching in the next two months, we
recognized the need to create easier access to relevant, timely news around
CNW's website is Canada's most accessed online resource for
direct-from-source news and information. It is the official newswire of
journalistic organizations across the country including the Canadian
Association of Journalists, the Canadian Journalism Foundation, Reporters
without Borders Canada and many more. More than 80 per cent of Canada's media
companies use CNW to disseminate their own corporate information, a fact that
not only speaks to CNW's credibility and reliability in the news distribution
business, but also to the long-standing relationships CNW has built up over
the years with Canada's journalism and media organizations since opening for
business in 1960.
All news releases categorized in this way will still also appear in the
main daily newswire stream at newswire.ca.
