Sustainability Charter

Process for Selecting Material Issues

Material issues (materiality) are selected using the following steps based on the GRI materiality standards and processes.

STEP1 Identifying material issues

Using evaluation organizations like third party institutions, ISO26000 and GRI Standards, global trends, internal workshops, and materiality at other companies as a guide, we identify material issues through comprehensive review of new problems related to sustainability, in order to discuss and select important issues that NTT should address on a global scale.

STEP2 Setting priority

NTT assesses the priorities to be addressed based on their impact on two aspects, "Growth as a company" and "Solving social issues." To achieve management that simultaneously helps resolve social issues and achieve business growth, NTT assesses priorities by incorporating the opinions of outside experts.

STEP3 Confirming validity & approval

NTT also incorporates the opinions of third parties from a global perspective, which are then deliberated by the Sustainability Committee and approved by the Board of Directors.
* These are reviewed regularly (once/year) and revised when necessary.
