Tokyo, April 27, 2022 - Rakuten Group, Inc. has launched the “Go Green Together” Project, which encourages an increased focus on environmental consciousness and building toward a greener future.

With the Go Green Together Project, Rakuten aims to communicate with users via services and points of contact they are already familiar with, in order to create opportunities for conversation about environmental issues and sustainable consumption. The long-term goal is to help shape a sustainable society that is environmentally, socially and economically conscious.

In addition to actionable advice for environmentally conscious living, the new website also offers a variety of campaigns and content to enjoy, including an interactive quiz that tests users’ environmental knowledge and offers green shopping tips, with Rakuten Points awarded for participating.
