Video Games that Promotes Healthy Environment

Since we are living in a digital era these days, most of the time we are surrounded by electronic devices such as laptops, smart phones, and other portable playing devices. Majority of those, we use in school, home, and even at home. Hence, basically technology is everywhere. And since technology is all around us, it means that we already have easy access to it mostly through the internet,

Although technology offers a lot of benefits especially when it comes to making our lives easier and faster, it also has its disadvantages or downside. Example, once a kid is exposed to video games through Facebook and other social media platforms, most of the time, they will find it hard to stop or at least control their usage because video games, in nature, is addicting. Another downside of this is that playing video games through io games  is known as a hobby that is not pro environment. However, there  are already video games that are developed to teach gamers how to go-green.

The primary reason why Eco friendly video games are developed is because right right ecological education will help the current generation and the future generation to promote sustainability and healthier environment. Ecological education is already being taught in secondary and tertiary education. Important terms like “global warming” is being taught in primary education, and terms like “carbon footprint” is being taught in secondary education.

Developers think that being able to get knowledge through video gaming is effective, specifically teaching eco friendly stuff.

If you think that your kid is starting to get addicted to video games, you may want to buy the following games:

1. Clim’Way – This is a popular game in the US. This games promotes the eradication of climate change. Technology helps us do this through this type of game.

2. Windfall– From the term windfall, this game focuses more on building a renewable energy by having a farm. This game was developed in 2007, but back then it was not that popular until today, when renewable energy is one of the primary concern of every government.

It has been more than three years since Windows 10 was developed. Prior to that there were a lot of operating systems made by Microsoft. These provide motive to the developers to further improve their OS and finally come up with Windows 10. Moreover, they were also able to provide solutions to the problems the OS is currently facing. Check out Meltcomics for this.

Microsoft company, like any other company, also has its social responsibility. It is committed to promote sustainable future through healthy environment. Below are the main areas of focus of the company:

1. Carbon– They have operated carbon neutral across the world since 2012. Their goal is to help reduce their own global carbon emissions with their internal carbon tax, and beyond our four walls through new cloud tools and policy support.

They were able to decrease carbon emission on their corporate campus in Washington state to cut energy use by more than twenty percent. Also, they are using the cloud and Al to further reduce their own emissions and help customers track, assess and reduce their carbon footprint.

2. Energy– Microsoft has been committed to using more clean energy to power their data centers and operations each year. Their goal is to craft solutions that help green the grid and accelerate the transition to a zero-carbon energy future for all.

3. Water– Another important thing Microsoft has been doing to help the environment is that they are developing smarter solutions for managing and reducing their water consumption. Their goal for this is to enable the creation of tolls and services to help address the world’s water challenges including scarcity, pollution, and ocean health.

4. Products– They think that they should not just be making products in order to gain profit. They believe that every device they make should have the environment on their minds. Their goal is to continually improve the environmental credentials of all their products.

As you can see, there are many things that we do not see behind every company’s goals and mission. Just because a company is a software developing company, does not mean that their only focus is on that, they are also thinking of different ways to help save mother earth, and that is through the social Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
