Gamescom goes green : The trade fair managers are also aware that the fair leaves a great ecological footprint and therefore want to make the event “green”. This will continue to provide free public transport tickets that are involved in a trade fair ticket.

Furthermore, the Game Association and the Koelnmesse are committed to ensuring that all emissions generated 100 percent are compensated by the promotion of other climate projects. This sustainability initiative should make Gamescom the first climate-friendly Games event.
