Welcome to Esports.eco
We shall be as a city upon a hill
We're at the eleventh hour. Now is the precipice of ecological catastrophe, the edge of the volcano looking in. Glaciers are melting, sea levels rising, droughts increasing – famine, blight, and disease are imminent. The future our parents built is hostile to human life, and as stewards of tomorrow, this is our call.
As an initiative of the United States Esports Asssociation, esports.eco aligns with the UN's S4CA and Race to Zero.
We're one of two esports orgs in the S4CA and the only one on the Race to Zero – the eyes of all people are upon us.
We believe that a comprehensive strategy for guaranteeing humanity's ecological future as well as the sustainability of the esports industry is not only necessary but long overdue.We're striving for esports that are ecologically aware and for an industry that contributes positively to the world around it. While other industries squabble and drag their feet, esports can lead the way towards a healthier future. In doing so, we can pick up the slack of other industries and show our value.
esports.eco works along six programmatic verticals:
Reporting emissions and total ecological impact
Offsetting ecological impact with policy instruments
Removing ecological pollutants with tech and hard work
Reducing periodic total impact ad infinitum
Reusing esports products through charitable giving
Recycling esports products once they're useless
esports.eco serves the purpose of building a uniquely American ecological initiative for our uniquely American esports industry. As participants in the UN's S4CA and Race to Zero, the United States Esports Association is committed to a 50% reduction in GHGs by 2030 in order to keep global climate change within 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit. esports.eco also serves these goals as part of the global community.
As an American initiative, our ultimate goals serve the competitiveness of the United States and our good image globally. To achieve these goals, esports.eco strives for:
End-to-end sustainability across esports supply chains
Green finance to keep influences well-intentioned
Institutional buy-in in support of esports.eco verticals
Institutional accountability to hold orgs to their word
Expectation of sustainability to normalize eco-esports
A Model Future for a Model Industry
