Gamification’s Role in Carbon Capture and Storage

At Level Up, powered by Agate, we’re committed to greener and more sustainable business practices. We believe games can be a powerful tool for education and awareness, especially concerning complex environmental issues. This belief led us to a unique opportunity to contribute to the global effort against climate change. 

Our Participation in the International & Indonesia CCS Forum 2023

Thanks to our cooperation with the Ministry of Maritime and Investment Affairs of Indonesia, we were given the opportunity to be a part of the First International & Indonesia CCS Forum 2023. This forum brought together experts, policymakers, and stakeholders from around the world to discuss Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), a critical technology in the fight against climate change. 

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS)

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is a process in which a relatively pure stream of carbon dioxide (CO2) from industrial sources is separated, treated, and transported to a long-term storage location. The aim is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and thus mitigate climate change. As of 2022, about one-thousandth of global CO2 emissions are captured by CCS.  

CCS is expected to play a crucial role in meeting global climate targets. Leading organizations including the International Energy Agency (IEA), International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have all produced long-term energy outlooks that rely on a rapid expansion of CCS in order to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C.  

Power plants fuelled by coal and gas continue to dominate the global electricity sector – they account for almost two-thirds of power generation. Power is the largest carbon emitter in the energy sector, creating almost 40% of global energy-related emissions. Despite the pressing need to confront the major causes of climate change, emissions in 2019 from the power sector were only slightly below their 2018 all-time high at 13.6 GtCO2 (gigatonnes of equivalent carbon dioxide).  

Including carbon capture, utilization, and storage in the portfolio of technology options can reduce the total cost of power system transformation. Carbon capture technologies become more competitive in the power system when their flexibility, reliability, and carbon intensity are fully valued.  

As a critical technology used to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from fossil-fueled power plants and other industrial activities, CCUS also helps to provide energy security by securing energy diversity and furthering investments made in existing infrastructure. 

The Importance of UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests. 

Our Collaboration with CIFOR

In line with these goals, we collaborated with the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) to create an educational game about landscape development and its impact on CCS and the environment. The game is based on CIFOR’s highly-demanded tabletop game called “Landscape Game.” With our game development expertise, we transformed this tabletop game into an engaging software game. 

The online board game lets players invest in various options on a given landscape and see the impact on the environment and the economy. It also teaches players about the role of policymakers in maintaining the sustainability of a landscape. We hope that our game can inspire and educate people about the potential and benefits of CCS for a green future. 


At Level Up, we believe in the power of gamification to make complex topics accessible and engaging. We’re proud to contribute to the global effort against climate change through our work. Remember, every action counts in our collective effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate climate change. Let’s level up our efforts for a greener future! If you want to create an impactful game like CIFOR’s Landscape Game, discuss with Level Up!
