Sanlo Joins GamesForest.Club
Excited to announce that we've joined GamesForest.Club to protect the last remaining old-growth forests in Peru!
Sanlo’s goal is to support game developers in ways that promote prosperity without damaging our planet. We recognize that the gaming industry’s consumption of electricity and e-waste undeniably adds to our carbon footprint and, to combat that, will continue to actively invest in sustainability, climate protection, and nature restoration.
Games Forest Club is an amazing initiative that brings the gaming industry together and utilizes our collective forces to reduce our carbon footprint. We are happy to join and do our part alongside other gaming companies to contribute to a more sustainable future.
With that in mind, the team decided to support one of the conservation projects in Peru. The Amazon rainforest is home to jungle giants on tall buttress roots, covered in lianas and epiphytes. They house sedate sloths, playful monkeys, and secretive jaguars. This jungle also stores large amounts of carbon and is essential for a healthy climate on our Earth.
When investing in this project and protecting the rainforest, Sanlo ensures that the land is legally secured for all future and left as undisturbed unique ecosystems and is only visited for research and education projects. Furthermore, local forest guardians ensure the integrity of the conservation areas and protect them from mining, logging, agriculture, and hunting.
“Climate change is one of the defining issues of our time. By joining the Games Forest Club, we are taking our first step in our commitment to reduce the carbon footprint of the gaming industry and contribute to protecting our planet,” — Olya Caliujnaia, CEO of Sanlo, says.
Looking forward to seeing our forest grow! Check it out in GamesForest.Club's virtual forest: https://gamesforest.club/?company=sanlo
