Organization for Environmental Management

The NTT Group recognizes that environmental issues are one of the most important challenges for management, and items of particular importance are decided based on discussions held with directors. An example that highlights this is the new environment and energy vision "Green Innovation toward 2040" announced in September 2021--this was established following a decision made by the Board of Directors involving discussions with all directors, including outside directors, held three times throughout the fiscal year.

In addition to incorporating greenhouse gas emissions into the business plans of each group company, attainment levels will be reflected in the compensation of directors as critical indicators.

The supervision system for directors also consists of the Sustainability Committee (chaired by the President) established in November 2021 directly under the Board of Directors, with the Green Innovation Committee established as an internal unit under the Sustainability Committee. The Global Environmental Protection Promotion Committee had previously managed and implemented environmental activities policies and their progress across the entire group, but these functions will be transferred to the Green Innovation Committee moving forward. Under this system, policies related to sustainability (the Charter and creating and abolishing accompanying policies, particularly deciding critical indicators) will be decided by the Board of Directors via the Sustainability Committee, and other matters deemed important will be decided by the Executive Officers Meeting. The role of the senior executives is to identify environmental issues and risks, and promoting businesses while taking into consideration these situations.

The NTT Group's Green Innovation Committee covers initiatives aimed at addressing environmental problems across various Group companies, and is chaired by the Head of Research and Development Planning, with membership comprising the heads of the environmental departments at major Group companies. The Committee meets more than twice a year to raise suggestions for the basic policy related to environmental conservation such as developing the Environment and Energy Vision, as well as manage targets, monitor progress and promote further efforts. A decision was made at the Committee's March 2022 meeting to set greenhouse gas reduction targets that have a direct impact on NTT Group executives' performance evaluations.

As electricity usage accounts for more than 90% of the NTT Group's greenhouse gas emissions, the committee also coordinates efforts with the Advanced Energy Usage Promotion Committee (chairperson: Vice President), responsible for managing the NTT Group's energy conservation activities (Total Power Revolution [TPR] campaign), to develop plans for reducing electricity consumption as well as managing implementation and progress.
