In NTT, we are solving environmental issues to promote a harmonious society through innovation and technology. We have three main focus areas: moving toward a decarbonized society, adopting resource recycling and building a future where people and nature live together in harmony.
There are many practical actions that NTT is taking to reduce the environmental impact of today's business activities
Moving toward a decarbonized society
We are committed to reducing greenhouse gases by moving to IOWN technology and increasing the development and use of renewable energy sources
Adopting resource recycling
Committed to becoming a recycling–oriented company and promoting effective use of resources from procurement through to disposal
Building a future where people and nature live together in harmony
A future where people and nature can co-exist in harmony and protect the natural ecosystem for a more sustainable future
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.
As the world adapts to the impacts of climate change, we examine what it means to be a sustainable organization today and why it will lead to a better tomorrow. NTT's new digital interface makes buildings smart and connected, measuring occupancy, heating and cooling to manage energy use, save money and help companies on the journey to net zero.
Half of the world's soils have reached a level close to desertification because of agricultural soils. In our Asia-Pacific area, one of our VPs is raising awareness about this issue and possible solutions.
The world is undergoing a food waste crisis on an unprecedented scale. If food waste were to be a country it would be the third biggest source of greenhouse gas emissions. The European Union (EU) is no exception to this problem.
Litter has become a global environmental issue polluting the natural world and harming wildlife. Not only is litter unsightly, it is also costly to remove, and can be a source of tension leading to conflict. Litter often contains hazardous chemicals that bleed toxins into the soil while creating a breeding ground for mosquitoes.
Plogging is a relatively new eco-friendly exercise that first started about five years ago. Erik Ahlström from Sweden organized an activity that combined jogging or brisk walking with picking up litter and the activity of plogging began.
By day Beth can be found working for NTT in customer experience. Come the weekend, Beth changes gear, working to support a local bird sanctuary. As a keen ornithologist, Beth is a committed champion of all things sustainability related.
Five years ago, one employee from NTT DATA decided to give nature a helping hand, restoring the original ecosystem of a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
Introducing our corporate commitments to Nature for creating a more sustainable tomorrow
Promoting energy conservation
Reducing power consumption through IOWN
Developing and promoting renewable energy
New environmental services
Next generation energy technologies
The three R’s Reducing, Reusing and Recycling
Reducing use of plastics
Water resource management
Conservation and preservation
NTT will improve the energy efficiency of its operations and equipment while also converting its corporate fleet to electric vehicles (EV).
Through the introduction of IOWN (Innovative Optical & Wireless Networks), NTT will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by producing a new ultra-low power network with photonic-based computing technologies.
Our key initiatives are to use more renewable energy and develop new energy sources that will reduce NTT’s carbon footprint.
NTT is creating innovative next-generation services with the aim of making society carbon neutral and reducing the environmental impact of society on the planet.
NTT will develop next-generation energy technologies that minimize damage to the global environment through creation of energy from: nuclear fusion, space-based solar power, lightning strikes or artificial photosynthesis
Increased focus on Reducing, Reusing and Recycling technology and other resource materials.
NTT is committed to reducing the use of plastics and promoting plastic recycling especially around telco equipment.
We are committed to ensuring the proper storage, management, and disposal of hazardous waste.
The NTT Group adheres to its Green Design Guideline for Buildings when designing and constructing new data centers and company buildings
The NTT Group will reduce tap water usage by using recycled wastewater and rainwater, while protecting water resources from chemical leaks.
By harnessing our ability to capture and process data we are taking actions that contribute to the preservation of the ecosystem and supporting the natural environment.
