Thomson Reuters, the world’s leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, has launched a new website called Sustainability (http://sustainability.thomsonreuters.com). The site brings together relevant resources from across Thomson Reuters, combined with valuable partner content, into a single space. The website will enable dialogue and support customers and engaged citizens in their efforts to find a more sustainable pathway for their businesses and communities.

“Focusing on sustainability – for ourselves and for our customers – is good business,” said James C. Smith, chief executive officer, Thomson Reuters. “This new Thomson Reuters website encompasses a broad range of issues, products and practices concerning the environment, economies, corporate citizenship and risk management. It is intended to serve and encourage sustainability initiatives across the global community of professionals.”

Sustainability will provide multiple perspectives on energy and environmental issues, including on-topic news, analysis and opinion from Reuters news; content and analysis for professionals from Thomson Reuters businesses; insight from outside experts working in specialist fields such as climate, energy, health, law and corporate governance; reporting on the efforts of The Thomson Reuters Foundation and the company’s own corporate responsibility initiatives; and aggregated news content from other sources. Future plans for the site include tools and unique resources, which will be introduced as they become available.  

Thomson Reuters has long been a leader in professional information and insights and has a number of products to support customers in their efforts to comply with regulations and grow their businesses in a sustainable and responsible manner, including BoardLink, Asset4, Accelus, World-Check, Point Carbon and Lanworth.

According to Ryan Sheppard, vice president of Trademark Assets and a leading member of the development team for the site, “Sustainability is a huge and growing issue for all of us. We must all think in new ways about a world of finite resources and vulnerable systems to ensure a sustainable future and begin conversations that include individuals and corporations, citizens and societies. Sustainability will provide news and other resources to provide context for this new thinking.”
