Realizing a Low Carbon Future

Realizing a Low Carbon Future

Reducing emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases, which are the principal cause of climate change, is an important social issue. Additionally, in recent years, it has also been considered important to devise adaptation measures to prepare for the effects of climate change.

There is growing demand for conserving energy given the rising amounts of electricity use associated with the development of ICT. At the same time, ICT is expected to contribute to energy savings, the reduction of CO2 emissions across society, and the provision of adaptation measures.

To achieve our zero environmental impact goal under the Environment and Energy Vision, the NTT Group will endeavor to curb CO2 emissions from its own business activities by shifting to renewable energy. We will also contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions across society and adaptation to climate change by striving to develop and disseminate the most advanced ICT services and technologies.


Organization for Implementation

The NTT Group has established a Climate Change Actions Committee which works under the NTT Group Global Environmental Protection Promotion Committee. The Actions Committee has the senior manager of the NTT Environmental Protection Office as its chair and the people responsible for the environment at eight major Group companies as members. The committee investigates and promotes climate change-related measures in the NTT Group, promotes measures aimed at achieving our targets for climate change, formulates policy and implements measures concerning application, and advances appropriate responses to climate change-related laws and ordinances.

The working groups (WG) under the committee advance activities according to their respective themes. The Environmental Contribution Promotion WG undertakes consideration and diffusion of our environmental labeling system for solutions, and target value management for contributing to the reduction of CO2 emission amounts across society. The Low-Carbon Promotion WG addresses target value management and promotion of measures for power efficiency, while the Climate Change-Related Legal Compliance WG tackles management of environmental measures related to climate change.

Green NTT

The NTT Group is working on two fronts to reduce CO2 emissions on the basis of the slogan, "Connect. That's Eco." The first front is to reduce the CO2 emissions of society as a whole through services provided by the NTT Group. The second is to reduce the CO2 emitted in the NTT Group's business activities.

Environmental Labeling System for Solutions

The NTT Group has been implementing an environmental labeling system for solutions formulated in fiscal 2009, which enables us to communicate the environmental contributions made by ICT to customers in a manner that is easy to understand, and to promote Group environmental efforts.
