Contributions to the Global Environment
A sustainable green future with abundance
Rising temperatures, frequent weather anomalies, and the depletion of natural resources are concerns shared across the world.
Using the power of ICT, we aim to realize a future of abundance in harmony with the global environment.
Global Warming Continues Unabated
Society needs to create a framework for quickly reducing carbon and moving away from carbon
Leaving an abundant, diverse planet for future generations
We view protecting the environment as a core responsibility of a global corporation.
The reduction of CO2 emissions has been hailed as a necessary means of addressing abnormal weather patterns around the world and to combat global warming. However, not enough has been done.
With pressing needs to do more, we at the NTT Communications Group are moving proactively to deploy low-carbon technologies as a provider of services that utilize ICT equipment.
In order to leave future generations an abundant global environment, such as by promoting a closed-loop economy and biodiversity, NTT Communications is aggressively implementing a multitude of initiatives while fulfilling its responsibilities as a leading global ICT company.

Business-linked initiative to protect coral reefs
As a leader in media services, NTT Plala, Inc. has taken action to rotect coral reefs, which play a vital role in the ecosystem of our oceans, by enlisting the help of its six million members.
Specifically, NTT Plala, Inc. offers tours of coral grafting to members of its Bukatsu DO! service, an online community for adults. Participants in the tour experience coral grafting with employees. In addition, NTT Plala, Inc. produces and distributes 4K videos about the state of coral reefs and activities to protect them, creating opportunities for people to think more about protecting coral reefs. In January 2016, we began donating a portion of proceeds from people who watched the video for initiatives to protect coral reefs, as a part of our aim to preserve biodiversity, a key aspect of our Green ICT Vision 2020.
NTT Plala, Inc. will continue to protect the environment with help from its members by providing enjoyable projects linked with its business activities.
Promoting Green Energy Use in Japan and Overseas
As a global ICT corporate group, one of our responsibilities is to promote the use of green energy around the world. In order to curb emissions of CO2 and realize a low-carbon society, companies are expected to more proactively use green energy, but this must be implemented with due consideration paid to the unique traits of each local community and regional climates. From this standpoint, we have installed solar panels on top of our data centers in Tokyo, Singapore and Malaysia, solar water heating systems at our data center in Hong Kong, and wind turbines at our data centers in India and office buildings in Thailand. In these and other ways, we have advanced the use of diverse renewable energy sources.
The generated electricity is used to light common areas.
In fiscal 2015, the amount of renewable electricity generated in Japan was equivalent to saving 128,405kg-CO2, the amount of CO2 absorbed by a forest of 9,171 Japanese cedar trees in one year.
