Mission

Grist is a source of intelligent, irreverent environmental news and commentary that's been around since 1999, when the internet was made of rubber bands. We cover climate, energy, food, cities, justice, politics, tech, and green living, and the innovative solutions bubbling up in each of those areas. Each day, we use our Clarity-o-Meter to point our readers to the news that matters most, and to translate wonky issues into stories that make sense.

Our mission is to set the agenda by showing how green is reshaping the world and empower a new generation to make change. And it's working: We now reach a community of more than 2 million people a month. Sixty-five percent of them do something based on our content. Mainstream media quote us. Policymakers sit up and take notice. Even our parents take our calls now.

At Grist, we think the fate of the world and the people who live here is a pretty important topic. So we take our work seriously — but we don't take ourselves too seriously. Because of the many things this planet is running out of, sanctimonious tree-huggers ain't one of them.

Agenda-setting journalism

Each day, Grist gives the world a fresh take on all things green. An independent, irreverent online media platform that uses unexpected approaches to inform and engage broad audiences, Grist has earned a reputation as the nation’s leading source of environmental news, analysis, and advice.

Population(s) Served

The Grist Fellowship Program trains early-career journalists in environmental storytelling, building the capacity of Grist and of the broader movement. We host two classes of three fellows each year, providing hands-on journalism experience and interactions with leading experts. Our fellows teach us a great deal, especially about how rising generations think and communicate and view the environment. We are increasingly finding ways to support our fellows as they transfer the skills they learn at Grist to other organizations and outlets.
