An Interdisciplinary Resource Supporting Sustainability and Environmental Studies
Focussing on the interdisciplinary study of sustainability and the environment, GREENR (Global Reference on the Environment, Energy, and Natural Resources) provides a wealth of authoritative content, empowering students and researchers to critically analyse and understand important topics that affect people around the world.
From global warming, to food safety, to health care access, and the impact of economic development on international relations, today's important environmental issues are shaping the global future. Additionally, as green sector jobs increase and companies develop green working environments, this resource becomes increasingly invaluable for business students.
GREENR provides news, overview information, video, unique commentaries, primary source documents, and statistics in research areas, such as energy systems, healthcare, food, climate change, population, and economic development. Also, users can access directory information to find international organisations in areas of interest.
Updated daily, GREENR meets student and faculty needs with:
- Resources for coursework in science, international studies, business, law and politics
- Hundreds of English-language international newspapers, magazines and refereed journals
- Content from Gale academic publishing partners including Elsevier and Sage Publications
- Case studies that illustrate environmental efforts in businesses across the world
- Country portals covering more than 160 nations
"GREENR is a fantastic database, we trialled it with our MBA cohort this year. They found it both informative and intuitive. The beauty of it was its ease of use and the quality of the information at hand. These are busy people, who want results yesterday, GREENR whilst not a time travelling product certainly lived up to their high expectations. I’ve just placed an order and am quite excited to add it to our portfolio."

"We used GREENR on the Lancaster Full Time and Executive MBA programs this academic year for the first time. Being able to access the wealth of policy related material available on the GREENR database added an extra dimension to the Global Society and Responsible Management module, helping to make the course relevant and topical."
