The games sector has the potential to make a significant impact on both how climate change is perceived by the global games playing community and in how we tackle it, individually, as businesses and collectively as a sector.
Ukie has committed to going carbon net zero by the end of 2022, we’ve recently joined the UN’s Playing for the Planet Alliance and have produced our Green Games Guide to help UK games businesses think about ways that they can improve their approach to sustainability and reducing their emissions.
How to get involved:
We want as many of our members as possible engaged in this work and there’s a couple of upcoming ways you can do this:
Ukie Sustainability Group – Next meeting Thursday 6th May – 10.00-1130am– Held every 8 weeks, this is our main forum for leading our sustainability work. This group will learn from other games businesses and guest speakers, suggest and guide Ukie activity and shape the collective industry approach to tackling climate change.
Green Coding Workshop - Wednesday 26th May – 10.00 – 12pm –– we think that the games sector can play a lead role in how software and digital content can be more energy efficient. At this workshop we want to gather some technical minds together to discuss and shape some possible directions of travel for this area. So please let us know if you or one of your coding or technical teams are interested in attending this.
If you’re interested in attending either of these sessions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
