Updated daily, GREENR is aligned to student, faculty and researcher needs

GREENR's reliable content is organised in highly accessible, visually appealing research areas covering relevant categories from Acid Rain right the way through to Wildlife. Portals are continuously added to ensure that GREENR remains relevant, for instance new portals include the Copenhagen Accord and the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill 2010.

To give you an idea of the breadth of content in GREENR, here are just a few of the portals topics featured:

Animal Welfare, Biodiversity, Climate Change, Conservation, Drought, Economic Growth, Ecosystems, Energy Efficiency, Environmental Justice, Extinction, Grasslands, Mining, Poverty, Soil Erosion, and Waste.


Andrew Holgate, Subject Librarian at Lancaster University Management School, UK
“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.”

Dr Martin Brigham, Director of MSc/MRes Information Technology, Management and Organisational Change at Lancaster University, UK
“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.”
