The companies will investigate the possibility of joint investment in domestic and overseas renewable energy projects and of supplying electricity to NTT Group companies.

Through these initiatives, we will combine NTT Group's ICT and direct current supply technologies with the Mitsubishi Corporation Group's power business insight and expertise to provide customers with clean power options and the kind of energy-management services that will make them more resilient to change in the energy landscape.

*Business platforms that provide optimal energy solutions to customers by organically linking storage batteries, electric vehicles, and chargers throughout a given area via ICT

Launch of Corporate Wellness Support Service--Support for Health Management via Big Data Analysis

In April 2020, NTT Life Science Corporation launched Genovision, a new health management support service to help promote corporate health management and employee health.

As employee health is becoming an important issue for companies, there is an increase in need for health management that approaches employee health from a management perspective and implements it strategically.

To cater to the demand associated with this trend, NTT Life Science offers Genovision packages bundling Genovision Dock, a genetic testing service for employees; Genovision Action, a lifestyle habit improvement support service for employees; and Genovision Insight, a health management consulting service for companies. Based on the ICT and security technologies, NTT Group has developed thus far, these services combine big data analysis with healthcare data and genome data acquired through genetic testing to deliver lifestyle habit improvement support that is optimized for every employee.

We are rolling out these services for use by domestic employees via healthcare institutions operated by NTT Group, and we plan to gradually expand the scope of availability to the various healthcare institutions across Japan with which Group companies have contracts. These services will also be made available for external companies, and we aim to support the health improvement and health management efforts of companies nationwide and their employees through Genovision services.
