Writer, editor and publisher David Sassoon is the founder and publisher InsideClimate News, a non-partisan, nonprofit news organization that won the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting in 2013. In 2003, Sassoon began researching the business case for climate action for the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. BusinessWeek used that research to help rank the Top 10 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, Sassoon founded a blog in 2007 that evolved into InsideClimate News, which covers public interest issues: human rights, cultural preservation, healthcare, education and the environment. Sassoon earned his undergraduate degree from Harvard University and a master’s degree from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism. He is the author of Tiny Specks in a Hurry: The Story of a Journey to Mustang.
