PLAYING FOR THE PLANET – HOW VIDEO GAMES CAN DELIVER FOR PEOPLE AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Twenty-one of the biggest companies in the video games industry – including Sony Interactive Entertainment, Microsoft, Google Stadia, Rovio, Supercell, Sybo, Ubisoft and WildWorks – formally committed on 23 September 2019 to harness the power of their platforms to take action in response to the climate crisis, as part of the Playing for the Planet Alliance. Watch a video and read a press release for more information about the commitments, announced at the UN Climate Action Summit.
The companies’ commitments followed the release in March 2019 of the report “Playing for the Planet: How Video Games Can Deliver for People and the Environment” (now in its second edition), written by Trista Patterson of GRID-Arendal. Read a blog post for more information about the report.
Playing for the Planet, an initiative of UN Environment and collaborating partners, invites you to join, learn and share new thinking for real-world impact.
