NTT Group’s businesses have an impact on ecosystems. For example, the telecommunication equipment essential to our business operations, particularly telephone poles and communications cables, is installed in the natural environment. At the same time, we are sometimes affected by the ecosystem, for example communications cables are bit and damaged by squirrels or crows.
Ecosystems full of biodiversity provide the bounty, such as water and food, which is critical to supporting all forms of life on earth. NTT Group is working to preserve the ecosystems, which are the foundation of society’s activities, while also considering the mutual influence between ecosystems and NTT Group.
NTT Group has established a Natural Harmony Working Group, which works under the NTT Group Global Environmental Protection Promotion Committee. It is led by the senior manager of the NTT Environmental Protection Office and its members include the people responsible for the environment at the holding company and eight major Group companies. The working group investigates and promotes ecosystem preservation measures in NTT Group.
