Mejoras en la Política de Inversión de la ICANN

Durante la reunión ICANN66 llevada a cabo en Montreal, Canadá, la Junta Directiva aprobó una resolución para incluir criterios de inversión sustentable en la Política de Inversión de la ICANN. Estos criterios de sustentabilidad comprenden factores ambientales, sociales y de gobernanza (ESG). Esta medida contribuye a una mayor reducción de riesgos, permite comparar retornos totales y está en consonancia con los Principios de Inversión de la ICANN.

Tras una evaluación exhaustiva, el Comité de Finanzas de la Junta Directiva (BFC) recomendó en forma unánime incluir criterios de inversión sustentable en la Política de Inversiones de la ICANN. El BFC considera que este es un paso importante en la mejora continua de la custodia de los fondos administrados por la ICANN en pro del interés público.

Esta medida redundará en beneficio del fondo de reserva de la ICANN y los fondos obtenidos mediante nuevos gTLD, los cuales continuarán siendo administrados con prudencia y responsabilidad fiduciaria a la vez que contribuyen con los avances en materia de sustentabilidad.

    Domain Name System
    Internationalized Domain Name ,IDN,"IDNs are domain names that include characters used in the local representation of languages that are not written with the twenty-six letters of the basic Latin alphabet ""a-z"". An IDN can contain Latin letters with diacritical marks, as required by many European languages, or may consist of characters from non-Latin scripts such as Arabic or Chinese. Many languages also use other types of digits than the European ""0-9"". The basic Latin alphabet together with the European-Arabic digits are, for the purpose of domain names, termed ""ASCII characters"" (ASCII = American Standard Code for Information Interchange). These are also included in the broader range of ""Unicode characters"" that provides the basis for IDNs. The ""hostname rule"" requires that all domain names of the type under consideration here are stored in the DNS using only the ASCII characters listed above, with the one further addition of the hyphen ""-"". The Unicode form of an IDN therefore requires special encoding before it is entered into the DNS. The following terminology is used when distinguishing between these forms: A domain name consists of a series of ""labels"" (separated by ""dots""). The ASCII form of an IDN label is termed an ""A-label"". All operations defined in the DNS protocol use A-labels exclusively. The Unicode form, which a user expects to be displayed, is termed a ""U-label"". The difference may be illustrated with the Hindi word for ""test"" — परीका — appearing here as a U-label would (in the Devanagari script). A special form of ""ASCII compatible encoding"" (abbreviated ACE) is applied to this to produce the corresponding A-label: xn--11b5bs1di. A domain name that only includes ASCII letters, digits, and hyphens is termed an ""LDH label"". Although the definitions of A-labels and LDH-labels overlap, a name consisting exclusively of LDH labels, such as""icann.org"" is not an IDN."
