GREEN IS THE NEW GAME
Environmental protection and climate protection play an important role for the games industry. Whether game developers or publishers, (esports) organizers, educational institutions, or service providers from the games sector: they have all long recognized the urgency of the issue. For this reason, 76 percent of German games companies are already involved in corresponding projects to operate more sustainably and to raise awareness of these issues. This commitment is clearly demonstrated, for example, by the "Playing for the Planet" alliance, an initiative of the global games industry and the United Nations (UN).
The organizers of gamescom, the game – The German Games Industry Association and Koelnmesse, are also aware of their responsibility in climate protection. The clear goal is for gamescom, as the largest games event in the world, to also lead the way in terms of climate protection. The reputation of gamescom is to be used to win over even more people, companies, trade fair and event organizers for concrete measures and climate protection concepts.
