GMO Registry Receives Letter of Support from City of Yokohama to Operate New Generic Top Level Domain, .yokohama

GMO Registry Receives Letter of Support from City of Yokohama to Operate New Generic Top Level Domain, .yokohama

Tokyo, Japan (PRWEB) March 13, 2012

GMO Internet Group company and registry services provider, GMO Registry today received official support from the City of Yokohama to operate new geoTLD, .yokohama. GMO Registry responded to a call for applications to operate the proposed new Top Level Domain and received a letter of support from the City following extensive evaluation. While already moving forward with its ICANN application to operate the .yokohama extension, GMO Registry is preparing a marketing strategy aimed at growing awareness of the “Yokohama” brand throughout industries including tourism, commerce, culture and sport both within Japan and internationally.

There are currently 22 gTLDs in use worldwide (.com, .net, .org etc.). ICANN is now set to expand the existing generic top level domain space and began accepting applications for new character strings in January 2012.

Registry service providers applying to operate certain geographical names are required by ICANN to obtain endorsement of the relevant government or public authority as determined by each country’s national administration. The City of Yokohama accepted applications from service providers wishing to receive letters of support between January 23 and February 20, 2012.

The evaluation of applicants took into account registration policy, operational policy, vision, business planning, service content, compliance with relevant laws and plans to develop the domain. GMO Registry believes that winning government support for its .yokohama application is further evidence of the company’s strong reputation in technology and proven track record.

After GMO Registry submits its ICANN application to operate the .yokohama extension, ICANN will begin evaluating applications in April, a process that is expected to take at least six months. New gTLDs are likely to begin rolling out sometime after January 2013.

About GMO Registry

GMO Registry was established in 2009 to provide all-in registry solutions for new gTLDs including assistance with the application process, building and operating registry systems, and marketing support. Several global brands including Canon and Hitachi have chosen to partner with GMO Registry to secure their respective brand names as TLDs. GMO Registry has also received letters of support from the municipal governments of Tokyo and Osaka to operate the geoTLDs .tokyo and .osaka respectively and the company will also work with new registry DotRyukyu to apply for and operate .okinawa and .ryukyu. GMO Registry will also submit its own application for the extension .shop. With .shop the company aims to build a dedicated namespace for ecommerce businesses worldwide.

Founded in 1979, InPro Corporation was the first company in its industry to introduce green building products. The company maintains its pioneering spirit by continually expanding its offering of green architectural products.

Broadlane Receives Champion for Change Award for Third Consecutive Year

Broadlane logo

Dallas, TX (Vocus) May 20, 2008

Broadlane is pleased to announce it received the Practice Greenhealth Champion for Change Award for the third consecutive year for outstanding contributions as a group purchasing organization to environmentally responsible health care. The award was presented to Broadlane, along with other top health care and health care partnering organizations, at the Environmental Excellence Awards today in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The Champion for Change Award is an achievement reserved for organizational partners supplying health care products and services that are considerate of the earth and its resources. The winners of this award have demonstrated success in greening their organization and have also assisted others who are committed to improving their environmental performance.

“This award is a reflection of BroadlaneÂ?s business ethics and represents a strong commitment to protect patient health and preserve the environment,” said Bob Jarboe, executive director, Practice Greenhealth. “The stakes are high, and Broadlane has shown us its solutions are sustainable and exciting.”

“Health care facilities and health care partners are accepting the challenge and demonstrating increasing willingness to take a strong stand on issues affecting the health of patients, health care workers and the environment,” said Charles Saunders, M.D., chairman and chief executive officer, Broadlane. “We are living the environmental motto of Â?reduce, reuse and recycle,Â? reducing our impact on the environment and assisting clients in reducing their impact on the environment.”

In October 2007, Broadlane adopted a significant innovative green alternative: computer virtualization. Virtualization software allows the Broadlane technology department to run several servers on a single piece of physical hardware. Broadlane converted the majority of its production and supporting test environments to a virtual platform. The transition to virtual computing reduced its environmental footprint by 90 percent. The virtual servers use less space, heat, power, air-conditioning and lower hardware maintenance costs. Broadlane recycled the old servers to reduce landfill waste.

“Broadlane is moving from awareness to action-oriented processes and systems that integrate environmentally conscience behaviors into all contracting processes,” said Annetta Nellams, senior manager, environmental stewardship program, Broadlane. “As a corporate leader in environmental stewardship, we not only provide environmentally preferable purchasing options to our clients, we also participate in environmentally preferable purchasing as a company.”

Broadlane actively seeks to contract with suppliers who are environmental stewards and provide environmentally preferable products for all clients. Environmental priorities and activities vary among clients and include objectives to raise awareness of environmentally preferable purchasing, environmental sustainability and patient safety.

“Broadlane recognizes the importance of providing environmentally sound products and services and has developed a comprehensive plan of action,” said DeAnna Herrin, senior vice president, contracting services, Broadlane. “Our environmental stewardship program represents our commitment and embraces action, rather than just awareness. We consciously choose environmentally responsible contracting, actively help our clients purchase environmentally preferable products and deliberately take actions at our corporate office to improve environmental performance.”
