Our commitment is to creating greater harmony and maximizing societal wellbeing using technological innovation while working to solve social challenges that support a more prosperous and harmonious society.

Words from our CEO

The NTT Vision for a Sustainable World

Companies that place people and the planet alongside profit are best positioned to thrive in the coming years. But, most significantly, their success will enable societies to flourish in a virtuous circle.

Building a Better World

Why Sustainability is Becoming More Important in Business

WSJ Intelligence conducted an online quantitative survey of 350 CEOs of large corporations to understand their views on how business should contribute to society’s goals. Around 21% of the respondents have been defined as “leaders,” since they display leading-class approaches for mission-driven and sustainability practices and the same level or above average for all other measures.

A new philosophy to rethink the future: “Self-as-We”

NTT’s approach is founded on the concept of “Self-as-We”, an idea that promotes the positive interdependence of people, nature and technology - moving from isolated groups toward more diverse cultures and highly connected communities. Through an altruistic and highly ethical approach, we will develop initiatives and innovations to promote economic growth while contributing to realizing a more sustainable society.

The three pillars
of sustainable

Building a more connected and greener future is a complex task. To drive us through this sustainable journey, we divided our initiative plan into three pillars that explore different solutions-oriented approaches.

Business Case: Nature

Technology Transforms Food Waste Recycling

Almost 30% of all food creates almost 10% of the greenhouse emissions in the world. NTT food waste solution represents our commitment to the circular economy. By using technology, food waste is not only composted but also accelerated and targeted so it has the most and effective outcome.


Business Case: Prosperity

Better Technology for More
Sustainable Data Centers

With more than 100 data centers in 20 countries around the world, NTT is constantly thinking about new ways to create efficiency and better utilize energy and improve the way we work for our clients and the environment.


Business Case: Wellbeing

Supporting Girls in Education

NTT is committed to the right to learn. In 2017, NTT “adopted” a government-aided girls’ school in Mumbai, India. Thanks to the computer lab, science lab or the library, or through the vocational training sessions, more than 1,000 girls are now computer literate and 95% enroll in college education.


We aim to improve our clients’ returns and
the world we live in.
