Greenpeace UK Hires Team of Investigative Journalists

"Former BBC and New York Times journalists among new team, with ex-Newsnight correspondent Meirion Jones acting as a consultant".

"Greenpeace has hired a team of investigative journalists as part of plans to make investigations one of three pillars of its environmental campaigning.

Former Newsnight and Panorama correspondent Meirion Jones is a consultant on the project, which will be staffed by journalists including former BBC reporter Damian Kahya, New York Times and Vice stringer Lucy Jordan and Maeve McClenaghan, formerly of the Bureau of Investigative Journalism.

About half a dozen core team members will be supplemented by a network of freelancers, field researchers and specialists based around the world. The unit will also use technology such as satellite imaging and drones to build investigations.

Greenpeace UK executive director John Sauven said investigative journalism would sit alongside direct action and mobilising public opinion as the organisation’s core activities."
