NTT DATA Carbon-neutral Vision 2050
NTT DATA sets targets and pursues measures to address the problem of climate change. In July 2022, NTT DATA revised the NTT DATA Carbon-neutral Vision 2050, its plan for responding to climate change, by adding a new long-term target of achieving net zero*2 carbon emissions by 2050. This revised vision supports the Corporate Net-Zero Standard*3 announced by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi)*4 in October 2021.
Based on this vision, NTT DATA will cut greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, including in its supply chain, and pursue Green Innovation to contribute to net zero emissions for its clients and society.
Sonya Bhonsle, Global Head of Value Chains at CDP, said:
"This year's report shows that environmental action is not happening at the speed, scale and scope required to limit global temperature rises to 1.5 degrees, with many companies still not acknowledging that their impact on the environment extends far beyond their operations and that of climate change. COP 15 couldn't have been clearer in the call to action on corporate reporting on nature. If a company is not preparing for future regulations on nature in the supply chain, they are open to a wide range of risks and could also be missing out on the opportunities that safeguarding nature will bring. Quite simply, if a company wants to be in business in the future, they need to start embedding nature into the way that they buy and collaborating with suppliers to drive action in the supply chain. Therefore, we need to see environmental leadership from companies right now by tackling their impacts on climate change and nature together, working with their suppliers in an integrated way that includes nature as standard, and incentivizing this engagement within their organization."
