David Sassoon

David Sassoon has been a writer, editor and publisher for 25 years, involved with public interest issues: human rights, cultural preservation, healthcare, education and the environment. In 2003 he began working on climate and energy issues for a philanthropic foundation that wanted to research the business case for climate action. BusinessWeek used that research to help it rank the Top Ten Companies of the Decade for emissions reductions and to produce a multi-part project that examined how leading U.S. corporations were responding to climate change.

As an outgrowth of his research, Mr. Sassoon founded a blog called SolveClimate in 2007, which has grown and evolved into InsideClimate News, a nonprofit, nonpartisan news organization.  He earned his undergraduate degree from Harvard University and a master’s degree from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism.
