Netmarble has engaged in various social contributions based on its sincere and constant goal of doing its part for the community since the founding of the company in 2000. The “Netmarble Cultural Foundation” was founded in 2018 to create even greater contributions valuable in a larger framework and more involved way.
The Netmarble Cultural Foundation actively promotes a healthy play culture and social contribution for people with disabilities. Since 2009, the Foundation has organized an annual eFestival for students with disabilities to promote self-confidence and a sense of accomplishment by organizing and awarding esports competitions.
In 2019, Netmarble became the first in the Korean gaming industry to create a parasport team for people with disabilities. The team has since competed in various national and international competitions, realizing Netmarble’s vision to foster and promote sport for athletes with disabilities.
Meanwhile, Netmarble will release its “Netmarble 2021 ESG Report” in the first quarter of this year to share the company’s direction and detailed ESG plans.
