Our sustainability ambition
We believe in using technology to enable a better, more connected future for all.
Through our solutions, operations and people, we connect the planet, economies and communities in innovative and sustainable ways that positively impact the world.
We’ve set ambitious targets including net-zero, biodiversity, circularity, social impact and diversity and inclusion. Using the power of our technology and our employees’ paid volunteering days, we’re committed to addressing regenerative conservation, education and digital access across our global communities.
Foreword from our CEO
Abhijit Dubey Global CEO, NTT Ltd.
A year ago, we set out our sustainability ambitions which put us on a path to achieve operational net zero emissions by 2030. Our approach, guided by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and using science-based targets, focuses on three interconnected themes: connected planet, connected economy and connected communities.
Some of our achievements over the past 12 months include:
- Introducing three days of volunteering leave for all employees. Over 1,500 of our people have devoted their time this year to support their communities.
- Reaching 1 million MWh of renewable energy puts us firmly on track to realize our 2030 target of using 100% renewable energy and achieving net zero emissions.
- Establishing global parental leave, transgender, and gender-variant policies. We also support our LGBTQ+ colleagues and colleagues with disability through our Pride and Accessibility alliances.
It was Mahatma Gandhi who said, “The future depends on what you do today.” I believe that at NTT, we are doing things today that will change all our collective futures for the better, and the best is yet to come.
