Stakeholder Engagement

The Fundamental Principle

The Fundamental Principle The NTT Group provides products and services to diverse stakeholders around the world, and its value chain continues to expand globally and grow in complexity. Along with these changes, our stakeholders' needs and expectations are also becoming increasingly diverse, and we must accurately understand and reflect them in our business activities through stakeholder engagement. Stakeholder input,

particularly on social and environmental issues, can help us to become more competitive and accountable while guaranteeing our public license to conduct operations in the various regions in which we conduct business. Stakeholder engagement forms the building blocks of trust-based, value-generating relationships. To properly develop these relationships, the NTT Group follows global guidelines based in part on the AA1000 Stakeholder Engagement Standard (AA1000SES) and AA1000 Account Ability Principles Standard (AA1000APS), and applies them to all of our worldwide operations. By having all Group companies apply the same principles to engaging with stakeholders, we intend to promote effective, efficient, and ultimately value-creating interactions between the NTT Group and its stakeholders. It goes without saying that all means of engagement shall be conducted according to relevant laws, regulations, and legal requirements.
