Sorare, the fantasy sports game on blockchain, has developed a new strategy in partnership with Plan A and Blisce to reduce its carbon footprint and become carbon neutral.
Sorare with Plan A and Blisce for a zero-carbon strategy
Renowned blockchain fantasy sports company, Sorare, has released its new sustainability strategy in collaboration with Plan A and Blisce, which will see it achieve net zero carbon footprint by 2025.
We’re partnering with @PlanAearth to build the world's first net-zero gaming company! 🤝
We will fully offset our unavoidable carbon emissions by the end of 2022, with the long-term objective of reaching net-zero by 2025. 🌲💚https://t.co/vZtC0BT4Zs

“We’re partnering with @PlanAearth to build the world’s first net-zero gaming company! We will fully offset our unavoidable carbon emissions by the end of 2022, with the long-term objective of reaching net-zero by 2025.”
With the goal of becoming the first fantasy sports company on blockchain with zero emissions, Sorare has developed a long-term sustainability strategy together with Plan A, a leading carbon accounting platform.
This involves decarbonization goals and automatic reporting of its carbon footprint, thus setting a new standard for sustainable practices among companies using blockchain.
Sorare and carbon footprint reduction with Plan A
Primarily, Sorare uses NFT technology to enable users to collect, trade and play with digital cards of real players by storing them on the Ethereum blockchain.
As early as July 2021, Sorare would have reduced its carbon footprint by 99% by moving transactions on the Ethereum blockchain to Layer 2. A migration of most transactions to Ethereum’s Layer 2 made the system 2,000 times more efficient.
But what Sorare is now planning is precisely a shift to green mobility, introducing new policies aimed at reducing emissions-the environmental challenge that now affects the entire blockchain world.
The partnership with Plan A also focuses on developing and implementing a science-based strategy to:
(1) reducing emissions in Sorare’s value chain
(2) investing in high-quality carbon offsets for emissions that cannot be reduced starting this year.
In this regard, Nicolas Julia, CEO and co-founder of Sorare said:
“Sorare is a business created to have a global impact on behalf of sports fans, players and teams but, as we grow our game and our community, we want to ensure that we are doing so responsibly and sustainably. We have already reduced our carbon footprint by 99%, but we know we can do much more. Our goal is to turn Sorare into a net-zero company and in the process to set the industry standard for sustainable practices among companies utilising blockchain technology. We’re delighted to partner with Plan A to help us achieve this and we look forward to working with them to meet our net-zero ambitions in a scientifically robust and strategic way.”
Fantasy soccer on blockchain and beyond
Recently, Sorare has been integrating new sports to its blockchain-based fantasy sports game. And indeed, having started with soccer, now it will be possible to collect, trade and play with the cards of baseball, basketball and football players on Sorare.
Sorare has established its latest multi-year partnership with the National Basketball Association (NBA) and National Basketball Player Association (NBPA) as Fantasy Game NFT.
This new gaming experience can count on two million registered users on Sorare in 185 countries, including European and Asian markets where the company is experiencing rapid growth especially when it comes to soccer.
