Environmental management / The NTT Group Environmental Statement

The Eco Strategy 2030

We have identified the NTT Groupís key environmental issues. As a result, climate change and ecosystems have been identified as the important environmental issues in society. Climate change, energy (electricity) and resources have been identified as the important environmental issues to the NTT Group's business activities.

Related to these identified important environmental issues, we have set "the Eco Strategy 2030" as the targets of the environmental activities of fiscal 2031.

Realizing a Low Carbon
Future

We will contribute to reducing the CO2 emissions of society by at least 10 times more than the NTT Groupís own emissions.

We will raise power efficiency per data transmission in our telecommunications businesses by at least 10 times compared to fiscal 2014 levels.

We will play our part in adapting to climate change by actively promoting initiatives through all our activities and by collaborating with our stakeholders.

Implementing
Closed Loop Recycling

We will achieve zero emissions* with regard to the final disposal rate for waste discharged from the NTT Group.

Planning a Future of
Natural Harmony

We will play our part in preserving ecosystems by actively promoting initiatives through all our activities and by collaborating with our stakeholders.

* Zero emissions: The NTT Group considers a final disposal rate of 1% or less to satisfy zero emissions conditions.

Low CarbonRealizing a Low Carbon Future

To realize a low carbon future and adapt to the effects of climate change, we have set three targets leading up to fiscal 2031. These are reducing overall CO2 emissions across society, improving telecom power efficiency, and adapting to climate change.

Reduction of CO2 Emissions across Society
We will contribute to reducing the CO2 emissions of society by at least 10 times more than the NTT Groupís own emissions.

Significance

We will seek to curb our own CO2 emissions (red ball) generated by the NTT Groupís businesses while contributing to overall reductions in CO2 emissions across society (green ball) through the provision of services and technologies.

Actions

  • Provide services and technologies that contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions across society
  • Promote R&D that contributes to reducing CO2 emissions
  • Disseminate examples of contributions made inside and outside the Company

Reduction of CO2 Emissions across Society

Improvement of Telecom Power Efficiency
We will raise power efficiency per data transmission in our telecommunications businesses by at least 10 times compared to fiscal 2014 levels.

Significance

We will seek to raise the efficiency of our electricity use, which is essential for us to continue our business. Achieving this target will also contribute to reducing CO2 emissions since electricity is the primary cause of our CO2 emissions.

Actions

  • Reduce energy consumption of communications equipment
  • Raise efficiency of communications facilities including networks and data centers
  • Promote R&D that contributes to energy conservation

Improvement of Telecom Power Efficiency

Adaptation to Climate Change
We will play our part in adapting to climate change by actively promoting initiatives through all our activities and by collaborating with our stakeholders.

Significance

We will take action on climate change by adapting as a means of moderating its effects that have already materialized and those that will be unavoidable in the mid- to long-term.

Actions

  • Disseminate examples of adaptation inside and outside the Company
  • Promote R&D that facilitates adaptation to climate change
  • Engage in initiatives with employees of the Group as well as with customers and business partners

Adaptation of the NTT Group:Developing disaster-resilient telecommunications networks and equipment

The NTT Group is striving to develop disaster-resilient telecommunications networks and equipment. These measures are aimed at mitigating the effects of disasters, and we will also continue providing communications services in the event of a disaster, while serving as an example of adaptation to disasters caused by climate change.

Adaptation of society by providing ICT:Mobile ICT unit

We provide mobile boxes and automobiles equipped with communications, information processing and storage functions to enable the swift recovery of communication functions in areas affected by a disaster. We also offer functions for collecting data on the people affected. These services are disaster prevention measures and adaptation to disasters caused by climate change.

RecyclingImplementing Closed Loop Recycling

To realize a future in which resources can be sustainable, we have set the target for fiscal 2031 as Emission of zero waste.

Emission of Zero Waste
We will achieve zero emissions* with regard to the final disposal rate for waste discharged from the NTT Group.

*Zero emissions: The NTT Group considers a final disposal rate of 1% or less to satisfy zero emissions conditions.

Significance

We will seek to promote resource circulation by effectively utilizing resources, which are primarily mineral and fossil resources, in the NTT Groupís operations.

Actions

  • Maintain and advance 3R activities
  • Prolong the useful life of communications infrastructure
  • Promote R&D that contributes to the effective utilization of resources

Emission of Zero Waste

Natural HarmonyPlanning a Future of Natural Harmony

To realize a future where the beauty and bounty of our natural world is sustained, we have set the target for fiscal 2031 as Preservation of the Earthís ecosystem.

Preservation of the Earthís Ecosystem
We will play our part in preserving ecosystems by actively promoting initiatives through all our activities and by collaborating with our stakeholders.

Significance

Recognizing ecosystem as the foundation that sustains our social activities, we will promote preservation of the Earthís ecosystem. We will pursue initiatives centered on preserving biodiversity and work to solve issues related to the blessings from these ecosystems, such as water and food.

Actions

  • Promote activities for preserving ecosystems, such as tree planting and greening, both inside and outside the Company
  • Carry out educational activities and human resource development both inside and outside the Company
  • Promote R&D that contributes to preserving ecosystems
  • Engage in initiatives with employees of the Group as well as with customers and local communities

Roadmap to 2030

We plan to annually disclose results regarding "The Eco Strategy 2030" and consider necessary improvements for our activities and targets for fiscal 2031 every five years based on our achievements.
