About MobiCycle Games

Explore how our unique platform empowers you to accurately report Scope 3 emissions, foster biodiversity, and reduce pollution related to your electronics and electrical devices.

Last updated on June 30, 2024

At MobiCycle Games, we harness the power of gaming to tackle the complex challenges of climate change and electronic waste management. Our games transform these critical issues from abstract concepts into engaging, interactive experiences that not only entertain but also educate and inspire action.

Our innovative Games Dashboard serves as your portal to a world where gaming and environmental responsibility converge. This platform offers a suite of games that are not just fun but are designed to provoke thought, spread awareness, and encourage real-world environmental activism.

At MobiCycle, we encourage organizations like yours to evaluate your suppliers on an individual basis and elevate your standards. Furthermore, reassess your relationship with electronics, paying particular attention to renewables. Finally, avoid the inclination to view everything through a carbon-centric lens, where halting fossil fuel extraction or deploying carbon sequestration are deemed to be the ultimate solutions.

Supplier Assessments

Many platforms opt for simplicity, estimating emissions based on the end product. However, assessing emissions by product alone overlooks the distinct characteristics of individual suppliers. We must seize the opportunity to benchmark suppliers against one another to motivate emissions reductions. We strongly advocate for transparency from your suppliers at each stage of your supply chain, giving precedence to those who exhibit the lowest emissions.

Electronics & Electricals

As a startup operating at the intersection of the digital, climate, and technology sectors, with a core focus on electronic and electrical equipment, we dare to ask a question often avoided: Is society's reliance on renewable energy as a panacea for our carbon crisis misplaced? For every tree we fell to install a solar panel, the less carbon we remove from the atmosphere. For every wind farm we establish, we contribute to an estimated million-plus bird fatalities each year. Our 'green' solutions, it seems, are catalyzing species loss at a rate over 1,000 times the natural pace. It raises the unnerving question: Are we simply swapping one ecological disaster for another?

Elevate your suppliers

The world's obsession with a single form of pollution — emissions — has downplayed the deadly cocktail of toxic substances leaking into our land, air, and water during the manufacturing and disposal of electronics. We have an uncritical acceptance of renewables. This leads to an underreporting of toxin impacts. No one is even looking at electronics or electricals. Electronics are only discussed in terms of chip shortages or renewables.

Ineffective eWaste management strategies lead to the rise in co-mingled waste, which often results in electronic devices ending up in landfills, and the transfer of eWaste to facilities that lack the proper capabilities for waste remediation, are issues of paramount importance to us.

Carbon Emissions

Still, we went beyond emissions. The carbon-centric approach to climate accounting is increasingly revealing its shortcomings. The practice of converting non-carbon gases into their 'carbon equivalents' masks their distinct and potent climate impacts, leading to a warped understanding of their role in global warming. Consequently, numerous corporate sustainability reports lack transparency due to their failure to capture the type and prevalence of the emissions generated by suppliers. Investors and other stakeholders are frustrated by the inconsistencies as they hamper their ability to compare organizations within the same industry or sector.

Organizations are standing at a pivotal moment. The current system of carbon accounting is nearing its expiration date. This era calls for a system that accurately reflects the complex dynamics of our atmosphere and reports the impact of each greenhouse gas independently. This paradigm shift necessitates replacing carbon equivalents with individual assessments for water vapor (H2O), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), ozone (O3), chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs and HCFCs), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (CF4, C2F6, etc.), sulfur hexafluoride (SF6), and nitrogen trifluoride (NF3).

AI is the future.

MobiCycle's approach is more nuanced. We address supplier emissions from the mining, manufacturing and retail stages of the product's lifecycle, for each product. This level of detail provides a more accurate depiction of a product's true environmental footprint. Nonetheless, a caveat exists — data for emissions during the disposal stage is virtually non-existent, signaling an urgent need for better research on emissions released when an abandoned electronic is recycled and incinerated.

Tracking emissions according to the stage and supplier is not without challenges. Data shortages may arise or obstacles in accessing the required data. Our consultants can meticulously assess your existing data inventory and recommend strategies to bridge any gaps. Strategies range from conducting supplier surveys, organizing site visits, or tapping into reliable third-party data sources.

Monitoring greenhouse gas emissions introduces another complexity - the overwhelming volume of data generated at each stage of a product's lifecycle, a significant portion of which may be irrelevant or inaccurate. To tackle this, our machine learning engineers have developed sophisticated algorithms that distill this data, unifying emissions across the entire product supply chain. Once we have calculated the emissions specific to any given electronic or electrical device, we can compare one product's emissions profile with another of a similar kind.
