GREENR (Global Reference on the Environment, Energy, and Natural Resources)

Description provided by the database publisher, Gale/Cengage:

An electronic resource offering authoritative reference content in the area of the environment, energy and natural resources, GREENR (Global Reference on the Environment, Energy, and Natural Resources), is an important part of a new generation of products from Gale. A reflection of Gale's "power to the user" philosophy, this product was designed with the end-user in mind.

From global warming, to food safety, to access to health care, to the impact of economic development on international relations, today's important environmental issues are shaping the future and reach far beyond the United States. Additionally, as green collar jobs are poised for growth, municipalities strive to be environmentally friendly, and corporations develop green working environments, this resource becomes invaluable.

GREENR focuses on the study of sustainability and the environment. Both interactive and current, GREENR allows users to navigate issue, organization and country portals. A one-stop site, this resource provides news, background information, video, unique commentaries, primary source documents and statistics in highly accessible, visually appealing research areas, covering relevant categories including energy systems, healthcare, food, climate change, population, economic development. One of the things that makes GREENR so user-friendly, is it does not look like the typical database product. This e-source also offers interactive maps and contextual multimedia, customizable journals and news, refereed case studies.
