Nominet is committed to reducing the impact of its activities on the environment and to reducing carbon emissions. It continues to do this through a range of methods, from scrutinising energy consumption and usage patterns with the aim of reduction, encouraging, and promoting sustainable travel, recycling food waste, paper, plastics, and all electrical goods. Parts of this work are investments into two woodland projects; Arnott’s Loan in East Lothian and Doddington North in Northumberland. This support to date is in recognition of Nominet's carbon footprints for 2018/19, 2019/20 and 2020/21.
Nominet is driven by a commitment to use technology to improve connectivity, security and inclusivity online. For 25 years, Nominet has run the .UK internet infrastructure, developing an expertise in the Domain Name System (DNS) that now underpins sophisticated network detection and response solutions that are used by governments to mitigate cyber threats. A dedicated public benefit programme aims to improve the lives of one million people, providing support and opportunities to tackle some of the most important digital issues facing young people today. www.nominet.uk/
