Environmental Activities

The NTT DATA Group’s environmental initiatives include not only the basics, such as saving paper, cutting back on waste and reducing greenhouse gas emissions (i.e., electricity consumption) but also an environmental orientation in our development of information systems. Our goal is to continually reduce the environmental impact of our hardware as we develop systems that yield environmental benefits by shortening running time and minimizing the movement of people and things.

Addressing Climate Change

The rising concentration of greenhouse gases and other factors are impacting the climate in ways that have led to the increased severity and frequency of natural disasters such as typhoons and floods while also significantly impacting everyday life across society and industry.

In December 2015, the Paris Agreement, which serves as a new international framework for global warming countermeasures beyond 2020, was adopted by the United Nations. Addressing climate change was also included in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals adopted in September of the same year. As illustrated by these developments, response to climate change in terms of mitigation and adaptation has gained even greater significance as a common global concern. The NTT DATA Group is pursuing strategic initiatives through its business with the intention of offering a more effective response to climate change.
