Betclic Apogee and the program for Espogame 2023

Betclic Apogee, the first Esports team in the world with Carbon Neutral certification, is continuing its path of innovation in the field of sustainability and is now preparing to present its latest initiative at EspoGame. A few days ago, the team announced the launch of the global platform which will be illustrated at the Rimini event, “Gamers 4 the Planet” – which will predict the environmental impact of the industry and reduce that of gamers worldwide. This initiative is the main concrete consequence of the launch of the documentary “Restart the Game”broadcast with an online premiere.

The documentary was directed by Joao Pedro Moreirawhile the original soundtrack was composed by DJ Riot. The film shows another side of the team’s activism. The team has its headquarters in Lisbon and is made up of 11 players from Portugal, Italy and Poland. This documentary sheds light on the huge environmental impact of the gaming industry, an activity in which 40% of the world’s population takes part and an industry that generates a turnover of more than €200 million a year.

The profile and future prospects of gaming – including the possibility of it being added to the Olympics – intersect with environmental impact. Even if the technological evolution seems to say the opposite, the truth is that the energy consumption associated with gaming has not stopped growing in recent years (for example, the transition from 1080p to 4K resolution has meant a growth in energy consumption of 64%).

The main concrete consequence of this film, which is available to the public in streaming and on digital platforms, is called “Gamers 4 the Planet”. What started out as a manifesto solicited by Betclic Apogee Esports has transformed into a platform for global action, to which all gaming fans can now join ( The main pillars of this project are to calculate and reduce the environmental impact, share experiences and support regeneration actions. Professional esports teams also have access to an exclusive app, which helps track individual and collective environmental impact over a certain period of time. In addition to Betclic Apogee Esports, some international brands such as FNATIC Team, OG Esports and Esports Insider have joined the platform.

The project will then be presented at the 2023 edition of EspoGame, during which, among others, Maria Raffaella Micuccio, Country Manager Italy for Betclic, will speak on Wednesday March 15 in the panel of 13:05-13:45entitled The gaming marketing keys: between Generation Z, sustainability and innovation.

Maria Raffaella Micuccio, Country Manager Italia per Betclic:

We are happy and proud to participate once again in an event as rich and interesting as EspoGame. The launch of the “Gamers 4 the Planet” platform, together with the documentary “Restart the Game”, once again confirms Betclic Apogee’s commitment to sustainability issues. We believe that the gaming sector can do a lot to reduce its environmental impact and create a virtuous circle of green-oriented initiatives and behaviours. Being able to talk about the project on such an important stage will certainly be an exciting and important moment
