Overview

As a global actor, we recognize that our business operations have an impact on the environment in general and the climate specifically.

Governance

Our approach to minimizing our negative impact on the environment is expressed in our Code of Conduct and Supplier Code of Conduct. The Codes express the need for our business operations and suppliers to monitor their carbon footprints, map energy consumption and promote waste recycling and reuse of equipment where possible.

Climate impact

We recognize that as a pure gaming company our main impact on the environment is the greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) that our operations emit into the atmosphere. We want to take responsibility for this negative impact by setting an ambitious target of reducing our value chain emissions (CO2e) by 50% by 2030. With this target, we are in line with the Paris Agreement on limiting global warming to 1.5-degrees.

Other aspects of our environmental responsibility

Waste management and sustainable sourcing are also integrated into the governance of our environmental impact.

For example, waste reduction and the selection of more environmentally responsible products continued at InnoGames and Ninja Kiwi throughout 2021 and Kongregate’s overall approach to sourcing is based on the five ’Rs’ of sustainability: Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose and Recycle.

Status

In 2021, 97% of our measured emissions were Scope 3 emissions, where external data centers and cloud services represented 94% and business travels 6%. We use green electricity to the extent possible and in 2021 approx. 50% of our total electricity use was green and where we have company cars, the majority are electrical cars that are charged with renewable electricity.

For our target of a 50% reduction of CO2e emissions by 2030, we will use EOY 2022 for our base year to ensure we capture all parts of the organization in our GHG accounting as well as all significant scope 3 categories.
