PR Newswire Logo (WORLD-WIRE) NEW YORK, NY, April 20, 2009 /PRNewswire/-- PR Newswire and World-Wire announced today a partnership that enables organizations around the world to target environmentally-related news to key media, government, business professionals and citizen groups that specialize in such issues as global warming, renewable energy, conservation and sustainability via the World-Wire network, a specialized database of environmentally-focused contacts.

PR Newswire's current distribution offerings for environmental news are enhanced by World-Wire's robust and quickly growing network of contacts at media organizations, government, corporations, universities and citizens groups that monitor "green" news. World-Wire is a resource provided by the Environment News Service (ENS), the original newswire of the environment, which has been publishing since 1990.

In addition to immediate transmission on the World-Wire circuit, news releases are also distributed to the Environment News Service subscribers alongside ENS' original news content.

Anyone with an interest in accessing breaking environmental news announcements can access World-Wire's homepage, www.world-wire.com, and also have news sent to them directly via email updates or RSS feeds. Additionally, audiences can share World-Wire content on blogs and through social media via tags for Facebook, Digg, Del.icio.us, etc. Bloggers, mobile news readers and application developers can add World-Wire's news via full text or headline RSS feed options.

"In partnering with PR Newswire, we are providing a forum for thousands of companies and organizations to raise awareness of their environmental efforts and communicate with the key individuals and groups that are on the front lines of saving Planet Earth," said Jim Crabtree, World-Wire founder and editor.

"PR Newswire customers can take advantage of ENS World-Wire's extensive network to deliver their 'green' news to the thousands of editors working in the environmental media, investors in the newly emerging sustainable business sector, and the millions of potential customers who are becoming aware of the value of environmental products and services," said Sarah Skerik, vice president, Distribution Services, PR Newswire.
