'Green' News Video Site Launched

Exclusive Channel for Environment-Focused Video on www.thenewsmarket.com/green

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 30, 2007) - The NewsMarket -- www.thenewsmarket.com -- today launched a dedicated 'Green' channel to meet the growing demand by the news media for video that illustrates a broad range of environmental issues.

The Green channel at The NewsMarket will contain video by companies on issues such as renewable energy, environmentally friendly transportation, 'green' buildings, employee volunteer programs, new scientific data and strategies and legislation to reduce carbon emissions. In recent months, news outlets have begun dedicating resources to track the global political, governmental and corporate support for green initiatives. Many companies in the transportation, consumer goods and energy sectors have started to publicize technologies and products that are more environmentally friendly.

"Going green is making headlines across the globe," said Shoba Purushothaman, CEO and Co-founder of The NewsMarket. "Green practices have moved from simply being fashionable to becoming a business-critical issue. We've seen demand skyrocket this year for environmental, climate change and green story content from our media user base of 12,000 media outlets in 144 countries. We expect that our Green channel will become the definitive place for online and broadcast media to look for green video content."

During the C40 Large Cities Climate Change Summit in New York in mid-May, media outlets in over 40 countries downloaded for use in their reporting more than 3 hours of video made available on www.thenewsmarket.com relating to the event and climate change issues. The content was provided by brands like Shell, Hearst and General Electric, and cities such as London.

All content on www.thenewsmarket.com/green will be available for free to registered journalists of The NewsMarket. Registration is a simple and free process and enables the news media to instantly access a deep and broad archive of multimedia content on green issues.
