The Eco ICT logo is designated by the ICT Ecology Guideline Council. Telecommunications services providers can display the "Eco ICT Logo" as a medium for broad public disclosure depending on the result of appropriate self-assessment of their actions to reduce CO2 emissions, etc., and to indicate the status of such implemented actions.

NTT is a participant in the efforts pertaining to the Eco ICT logo.

Self-Assessment Checklist for CO2 Emission Reduction from Energy Conservation Efforts by Telecommunications Services Provide

[Mandatory items]
    Assessment items Implementation, measures taken
Preparation of a voluntary ecological action plan 1 Has a voluntary ecological action plan stipulating various efforts directed at reducing CO2 emissions through energy conservation been created and is it being executed?

We have set the “realizing a low carbon future” as one of the figure that aim to achieve, under “the NTT Group Environmental Statement”, which is a frame work for our environmental activities.

To realize a low carbon future, we have set the target to raise the efficiency of our electricity use. Achieving this target contributes to reducing CO2 emissions since electricity is the primary cause of our CO2 emissions.
