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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
