Organization for Environmental Management

We established the NTT Group Global Environmental Protection Promotion Committee as an internal unit under the CSR Committee (see page 010) to discuss and determine the environmental activities policies for the entire Group.

The NTT Group Global Environmental Protection Promotion Committee, which meets twice a year, is chaired by the NTT executive vice president, who is the head of NTT's Environmental Protection Office (Head of Research and Development Planning), with membership comprising the heads of the environmental departments at major Group companies (NTT East, NTT West, NTT Communications, NTT DOCOMO, NTT DATA, NTT Urban Solutions, NTT COMWARE, NTT Ltd. Japan, NTT Anode Energy and NTT Advanced Technology). The committee formulates environmental activity policies based on the decisions of the CSR Committee and deploys environmental activities throughout NTT Group companies.

The committee reports its decisions to the CSR Committee. Particularly important decisions on environmental issues, such as the formulation of environmental targets for the NTT Group as a whole, are based on discussions with the Board of Directors. For example, the NTT Environment and Energy Vision announced in May 2020 was determined following discussions by all board members, including outside directors.

The NTT Group Global Environmental Protection Promotion Committee oversees the organizations placed under it while planning basic policies on environmental protection, managing targets, and addressing issues. It also worked on preparing and establishing The NTT Group Environmental Statement and The Eco Strategy 2030.

Furthermore, risks and opportunities identified as having a significant impact on business, such as environmental laws, regulations, and systems, will be reported to the Business Risk Management Committee, which determines enterprise risk, and presented to the Board of Directors.

In addition to working with the environmental departments, the committee also cooperates with other departments to pursue related initiatives. Particularly with regard to electricity usage, which accounts for more than 90% of the NTT Group's CO2 emissions, the committee collaborates with the Advanced Energy Usage Promotion Committee, which is responsible for promoting the Total Power Revolution (TPR) campaign, the NTT Group's energy conservation activities. As for the risks and opportunities presented by environmental issues to our facilities and equipment, monitoring and assessment are conducted through a collaborative effort between staff in charge of environmental issues and those responsible for facilities, and these individuals are appointed for every Group company.

NTT Group Global Environmental Protection Promotion Committee is established under Board of Directors, President (Executive Officers Meeting) and CSR Committee, and also cooperates with Advanced Energy Usage Promotion Committee mutually. NTT Group Global Environmental Protection Promotion Committee, chaired by General Manager of the NTT Environmental Protection Office, oversees issue-based subcommittees, and working groups (Climate Change Actions Committee, Closed Loop Recycling Committee, Natural Harmony Working Group). Committees are operated by NTT Environmental Protection Office and consisted of the members dispatched from the group companies (such as NTT East Green Management Office, NTT West Environmental Management Promotion Department, NTT Communications CSR and Environmental Protection, NTT DATA ESG Promotion Department, and NTT DOCOMO Corporate Social Responsibility Department). The NTT Network Technology Laboratories, Environmental Technology and Management Project supports the operation of NTT Environmental Protection Office and Committees.
