* [[Afilias]]
===Partnership with DotGreen Community, Inc.===
In September 2014 it was announced that [[Afilias]] had partnered with DotGreen Community Inc. to provide the .green TLD. DotGreen had previously withdrawn from the contention ahead of the private auction that resulted in Afilias winning the string. Afilias will provide the technical backend for the Registry while the DotGreen Community will market the TLD. The companies have also partnered with EarthShare to provide a portion of the profits to sustainability programs around the world.<ref>[ .green - The Top Level Domain for the Global Green Economy] ''PR Newswire''; Retrieved 08 Oct 2014</ref><ref>[ DotGreen is Back From the Dead] ''DomainIncite''; by Kevin Murphy; Retrieved 08 Oct 2014</ref>
==Former Applicants==
* [[The DotGreen Community, Inc.]], the organization is led by [[Annalisa Roger]], co-founder and co-Chair of the San Francisco Regional Chapter of [[ISOC]]. [[Neustar]] will provide the technical back-end registry solutions.<ref>[ About Us]</ref> It is associated with the [[Dot Green Foundation]]. This applicant submitted a [[PIC|Public Interest Commitment]], which can be downloaded [ here].
In an interview, Ms. Roger confirmed that .green has many supporters from the environmental community and the internet industry. She explained that .green means many things, and is about encouraging sustainable, humanitarian, and ecological progress; and represents a worldwide movement that is better served by the proposed TLD. She also welcomed the competition and choice created through other proposed environmental TLDs, like [[.eco]].<ref>[ Using The Internet To Better The Planet,]</ref>
The Representative of the Czech Republic issued a [[GAC]] Early Warning to all applicants but [[The DotGreen Community, Inc.]]. The warning system is noted as a strong recommendation on behalf of national governments to the [[ICANN Board]] that a given TLD application should be denied as it stands. Applicants are encouraged to work with objecting GAC members.<ref>[ GAC Early Warning,] Retrieved 27 Nov 2012</ref>
The Cezh Czech warning is of the belief that none of the other 3 applicants are prepared to act in the global public interest with the .green TLD, and can not aid and be a part of the green, sustainable movement as the [[The DotGreen Community, Inc.]]. The warning regards the latter's application as highly respected and widely supported, and the others as seemingly disinterest attempts by portfolio applicants. "These 3 applicants are applying for .green as a TLD string amongst many others they are are applying for. They are probably less prepared than Dot Green Community, Inc. to play an active participatory role in the Green movement of community in either a local or global manner. They are not recognized by leaders in the Green Movement, as evidence that there were no positive comments of supports issued for their applications.<ref>[ Green CZ,]Retrieved 27 Nov 2012</ref>
