GreenNet is a not-for-profit ethical collective ISP. It was set up in 1985 as an effective and cheap way for environmental activists to communicate – long before the web and dot-coms. Unlike many other internet service providers, GreenNet is geared to the needs of activist organisations and individuals working for social change. Our use of networking technology focuses on supporting and promoting their work for peace, human rights and the environment.
As part of our work within the NGO community, we set up the GreenNet Educational Trust in 1994 as a registered charity which can spend any profits from GreenNet's activities on support and promotion of the use of ICTs. GreenNet is also a founding member of the Association for Progressive Communications (APC), a global network of networks that work for peace, human rights and the environment through the use of ICTs.
