Larkspur, CA (PRWEB) April 22, 2015. DotGreen Community, Inc., stewards of the new .green Top Level Domain (TLD) name, announces that companies and organizations around the world now have the opportunity to showcase their commitment to sustainability and the green movement this Earth Day by joining the more than one thousand who have registered .green Internet addresses. .green became available to the public on March 24th, 2015.
“The .green digital address is positioned to become one of the most recognized domain name extensions across the Internet as business and consumers move in record numbers to more sustainable ways in how we live and do business. .green is the world’s first and only online TLD platform for this global green shift and for the green economy.” said DotGreen Community, Inc.

Early movers in their industries registering .green domain names include General Motors and Fetzer Vineyards.

Smaller companies, individuals and nonprofit organizations supporting environmental initiatives are also taking advantage of this opportunity.
“At General Motors, we see every day as Earth Day and every day we are making progress in reducing our environmental impact and footprint. We see .green as a channel dedicated to sustainability where we will be able to get this message across and cut through the Internet clutter in reaching our stakeholders and customers,” said Sharon Basel, Sustainability Communications Manager, General Motors.
.green, the new domain address space approved by ICANN, is the world’s first online channel for the growing ranks of values-driven consumers and companies committed to offering more sustainable and healthier products in the marketplace. Those investing in more sustainable and socially responsible operations are showcasing these initiatives on their .green website.
