Corriere della Sera is the leading Italian newspaper for its distribution, history, prestige and authoritativeness.
In 2010, Corriere della Sera inaugurated its strong commitment to environmental issues, launching special editions of the “Sette” weekly publication, “Sette Green", an “Environment” section on its website, and dedicating two pages of the daily's Milan edition to urban ecology. The aim is to dig ever-deeper into environmental issues on all newspaper platforms.
Corriere della Sera has dedicated LifeGate a permanent weekly section in the “Environment” pages of the newspaper’s Milan edition, and LifeGate is charged with creating content for the branded “Environment” section of its website, Correre.it/ambiente. The Corriere publishes online daily updates (eco-news featured also on the home page, data and research), weekly updates (eco-surveys), monthly updates (eco-guides, in-depth analysis and articles) and single-shots (providing customised calculation tools to quantify the impact of one’s daily lifestyle in terms of CO2 emissions).
Since its beginning in 2011, the collaboration with LifeGate's newsroom has been renewed periodically. It has contributed to extending and completing the Corriere della Sera's coverage of environmental issues, including energy, geopolitics and conservation. A regular exchange of links and a circuit of clicks to and from the Corriere della Sera's and Lifegate’s websites have been activated. The “Environment” section was awarded the Medaglia Spadolini Prize by Eco & the City in 2012, with the following explanation: “The section, one of the most popular, was designed, curated, realised and coordinated thanks to effective teamwork. Corriere.it/Ambiente's pages, in fact, allow readers of online content, whose number is constantly increasing, to learn and respect the environment and live better in a polluted world”.
