NEW YORK, Oct. 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Community Gaming, the premier all-in-one esports competition platform, has announced today that it has, through a collaboration with the Play2Learn Foundation and KlimaDAO, become climate positive by completely offsetting its on-chain carbon emissions, particularly through the preservation of the rainforest. With the adoption and development of initiatives focused on creating a sustainable Web3 ecosystem, this partnership has helped mitigate the carbon footprint of Community Gaming’s on-chain transactions.


A Decentralized Autonomous Organization for Change, KlimaDAO aims to leverage Web3 technology to reduce market fragmentation and connect climate finance with global sustainability projects. Through the building blocks provided by KlimaDAO to enable high-impact and composable Web3-based carbon solutions and mass participation in the carbon markets, Community Gaming and the Play2Learn Foundation have been able to put their initiatives into effect, participating in the market through the use of the KLIMA token.

“It was important for us to not only mitigate our impact on the environment but properly do our part to make sure we’re in a position to give back more than we take,” said Community Gaming CEO Chris Gonsalves. “We’re proud to say that we’re climate positive and that our work with the Play2Learn Foundation and KlimaDao has allowed us to make a positive impact on the environment.”

In addition to its stated goals of widening financial inclusion and improving technological literacy, the Play2Learn Foundation has prioritized education and policies focused on Web3’s environmental impact. In the course of its activities, the foundation has taken a proactive stance toward integrating sustainability into Community Gaming’s core principles. 

“The Play2Learn Foundation has already offset 500 tonnes of MCO2 along with 200 tonnes of NCT, equating to about 4,200 mature trees being planted or preserved,” said David Garpenstahl, Executive Director of the Play2Learn Foundation. “This initial contribution not only pushed Community Gaming  towards being CO2 negative with their on-chain emissions but laid the needed groundwork toward Community Gaming becoming more environmentally conscious and climate positive as an organization.”

David Garpenstahl and Chris Gonsalves will join the Planet of the Klimates podcast for an in-depth discussion of Community Gaming and the Play2Learn Foundation’s environmental initiatives and contributions toward a clean Web3 ecosystem.
