There has been a growing movement to evaluate companies and their relationship with society in terms of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors. This stems from the demand for companies to make global responses to social and environmental issues as represented by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Statement: “NTT DATA uses information technology to create new paradigms and values, which help contribute to a more affluent and harmonious society.” Amid dramatic advances in technology and the increasing pace of digital transformation, we feel society’s growing expectation for us to fulfill this duty.
With this in mind, we clarified our stance on ESG under the title “NTT DATA’s ESG Management” and incorporated it into the management strategy of our new Medium-Term Management Plan (fiscal 2019–2021). Based on our consistent belief and our commitment to “shaping future society with our clients,” we will provide solutions for the sustainable development of our clients and society. At the same time, we will help resolve social issues and enhance corporate value by pursuing business activities that emphasize human resource development, work-style reforms and respect for diversity.
