EURid Shows a 94% Reduction of Its Footprint since 2012

Share

EURid, the not-for-profit organisation that operates the .eu and .ею top-level domains, is the first European TLD registry that registered for the EU Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) from 2011. Since then, EURid has regularly assessed the environmental impact of its activities and monitored the compliance of its policies and procedures. As over the past four years, in Q2 2019 EURid was audited for the CO2 emissions of the previous year, resulting in an overall footprint of 135 tons CO2eq, which shows a 94% reduction since 2012.

“We have achieved carbon neutrality via several actions and the compensation of the audited emissions. We were and are still among the first in our sector to report on our commitment to protect the environment”, commented CEO Marc Van Wesemael.

Through EMAS, EURid has had the opportunity to support a multitude of global sustainability initiatives, like the Ugandan Borehole Project, Ecomapuà Project in the Amazon, the Dak Rung Hydropower Project in Vietnam, and in 2019, the reforestation initiative in Monchique, Portugal.

External Relations Manager Giovanni Seppia explains: “In summer 2018, the area of Monchique (Portugal) was destroyed by devastating wild fires. In the coming years thousands of trees are due to be planted in the area and EURid is pleased to be able to contribute to the efforts it takes to revive and rebalance the flora and fauna that was lost in the area.”
