As most of our broad range of more than 70 services is offered online, our daily operations rely on consumption of electricity, which, depending on the way it is produced, can result in greenhouse gas emission, responsible for climate change.

This is why Rakuten is making efforts to reduce our adverse impact on climate change in order to contribute to society without making it bear the environmental burden of our operations.
