Gamigo Environmental Alliance

Gamigo is continuing its efforts to help save the planet. Today they announced that they have joined the Playing for the Planet Alliance, an organization consisting of over 35 gaming companies dedicated to reducing the industry’s carbon footprint. The organization also hopes to “implement environmental activations into their games”.

On joining the Alliance, game companies make commitments based on the UN Environment Program. These commitments are voluntary, but also specific and have timelines involved. They focus not only on the care of the planet but also the people living on it – which tend to go hand-in-hand.

As part of their commitment to the organization and the planet, gamigo agreed to take on specific goals within the year. These include decarbonizing the platform and becoming neutral by 2022 and educating their player base about environmental sustainability through activations in their games. They will also be participating in the annual Green Game Jam – an event organized by the Playing for the Planet Alliance.

Among the goals of the Playing for the Planet Alliance is for at least half of the organization to reduce their carbon emissions to a net-zero by 2030. Another is to integrate “authentic environmental activations in games with existing player bases” via the Green Game Jams. Gamigo will begin taking part in their first Green Game Jam next year with about 50 other studios. The theme of the jam will be Food, Forests, and our Future, and the end goal is to shift players’ food choices with a focus on the environment. They also hope to plant a million trees and bring a million players together for a digital climate walk.
