GMO Internet Group's Initiatives on SDGs

2. Zero hunger

GMO Internet Group has been driving the sustainable measures through foods with LEOC at GMO Yours, a communication space, at the first headquarter in Cerulean Tower and second headquarter in Shibuya FUKURAS.

Lunch menus offered at GMO Yours are reservation-only to reduce food waste. Besides that, in January 2021, GMO Internet Group and LEOC have launched a lunch menu for TABLE FOR TWO. In TABLE FOR TWO program, every time a meal that controls the calories to prevent obesity and lifestyle diseases is bought, a donation of JPY 20 per meal is used to pay for school meals of developing countries' children. GMO Internet Group actively strives to solve global issues through foods.

10.Reduced inequalities

GMO Internet Group is motivated to eliminate the digital divide, which is an inequality that occurs between people who can use information and communication technology (ICT) and those who cannot, by providing the "place" for the Internet. We want to eliminate inequality in the access to information by providing the "place" for the Internet that serves as a foundation for providing and gathering information, which translates into the reduction of various disparities that occur between people or countries.
