New York, 23rd September 2019 - Green Man Gaming, one of the world’s biggest e-tailer of digital download games, has pledged to work with its community on a major reforestation initiative which was announced last night in New York City, at the United Nations Climate Summit Conference.

The alliance – a collective of some of the world’s biggest names in video gaming have all made individual pledges.  Their mission is to help to alert and inspire the video games community about our carbon gaming print, drive carbon neutral and energy efficiency projects, and manage restoration programmes to help tackle the climate change crisis.

Green Man Gaming’s commitment is to lead a restoration programme by planting trees, starting in the first quarter of 2020. Green Man Gaming will be partnering with a certified and well-known tree planting organisation, to be announced shortly.  The programme will launch in the UK to begin with, and then extend into other international markets from 2021. 

Funds will be raised through sales of selected games on Green Man Gaming’s  ecommerce platform.  This will then be invested in a planting programme, which will result in an estimated additional 200 acres of new trees in year one.

Paul Sulyok, CEO and Founder of Green Man Gaming, said. “Green Man Gaming has a direct and pretty personal relationship with hundreds of millions of gamers globally.

Many of us really care about what we are doing to the planet. We know we’ve all got to face up and fess up, and take more positive action. We’ve always beaten the drum for digital downloads - so plastic free gaming – and we’re now trying to up our game to do the best we can to support

the planet.  These may be small acorns, but if we all rally round, it will make a much needed impact.”

The Alliance was formally launched at the UN Climate Summit yesterday with new members set to come on board in the weeks ahead and activities planned at some of the biggest gaming events across the world.
