Green NTT

The NTT Group, which includes the NTT DATA Group, has been working hard to protect the global environment under the NTT Group Ecology Program 21. As an additional weapon against global warming, the entire NTT Group is cooperating in the “Green NTT” initiative, which intends to increase the use of renewable energy sources with a particular focus on solar power systems.

Under the program, NTT Green LLP, a limited liability partnership, was established in August 2008 to help expand the use of solar power and other natural energy sources within the NTT Group. In addition to installing solar power systems with a total capacity of five megawatts within the NTT Group by 2012, future objectives include cooperation with local governments and businesses to help expand the use of natural energy outside the group.

Our plan to install a solar energy system at NTT DATA Corporation’s main office is in progress. Additionally, we will take advantage of NTT Green LLP in the deployment of solar power systems and other renewable energy sources.
