In 2003, The New York Times acquired full ownership of the IHT as part of its long-term strategy to reach the world's best audience with the highest quality journalism. This gave the IHT timely access to the unparalleled news resources of The Times and an expanded network of its own correspondents to provide readers with an international, independent perspective on global news and events.

The Global Clean Energy Forum is convened by the International Herald Tribune, one of the world's most respected and influential media brands.
