The Climate Pledge is an initiative signed by multiple large companies throughout the world who're looking to do their part in regard to climate change, wherein they're trying to reach net-zero status by 2040. Play'n GO is a bit ahead of the curve with their 2030 commitment, although this is likely because they're much smaller than some of the other groups who've committed, such as IBM, Amazon, and Uber.
Regarding the pledge, Play'n GO's Vanessa Arenram said, "Sustainability is so important to all of us here at Play'n GO, and we're delighted to take this opportunity to sign up for The Climate Pledge."
"We all have to play our part to lower our carbon footprint to ensure a bright future for the generations to come, and this ambitious agreement will see us operating at net zero within the next decade. We're excited to make this commitment today, and look forward to all of our people around the world coming together to make these goals a reality."
In order to meet the requirements of the pledge, Play'n GO will have to meet the following goals:
Measure and report greenhouse gas emissions on a regular basis.
Implement decarbonization strategies in line with the Paris Agreement through real business changes and innovations, including efficiency.
improvements, renewable energy, materials reductions, and other carbon emission elimination strategies.
Neutralize any remaining emissions with additional, quantifiable, real, permanent, and socially beneficial offsets to achieve net-zero annual carbon emissions by 2040.
The Climate Pledge was created by Amazon in 2020 and works as a capital venture fund that invests in companies that look to decarbonize the globe. There are currently 434 signatories across 56 industries in 36 countries that have jumped on-board.
