About Playing for the Planet
The Playing For The Planet Alliance was launched in 2019 during the Climate Summit at UN Headquarters in New York. In total, the members of the Alliance have the ability to reach more than 1 billion video game players. In joining the Alliance, members have made commitments ranging from integrating green activations in games, reducing their emissions and supporting the global environmental agenda through initiatives ranging from planting millions of trees to reducing plastic in their products.
The initiative is facilitated by the UN Environment Programme with the support of GRID-Arendal and Playmob.
