Social Contribution Activities
With a global presence in our operations, we provide assistance overseas in a variety of ways, in addition to Japan.
Subway guides for foreigners (China)
NTT Communications China, a member of the NTT Communications Group, performs volunteer activities to help the increasing number of foreign tourists become familiar with the attractions of Shanghai.
The subway system in Shanghai is difficult to grasp, and foreigners have complained about the difficulties in understanding directions to tourist destinations. With the intention of helping tourists have an enjoyable visit, we act as volunteer guides inside subway stations, giving directions, helping with the purchase of train tickets, and recommending spots to visit in Shanghai.
Assistance for reconstructing disaster-affected areas
NTT Communications Group has endeavored to fulfill its social mission by providing assistance soon after the Great East Japan Earthquake struck in 2011.
We undertook initiatives that only an ICT company can perform, and created an environment so that our employees can become involved in assisting with reconstruction.
In disaster-affected areas, our volunteers have helped in various ways since the summer of 2011, such as by removing waste and debris, rebuilding communities and communicating with survivors, mainly in Shichigahama Town, Miyagi Prefecture.
The cafeteria in the Hibiya Building prioritizes the sourcing of agricultural produce from disaster-affected regions for meals served in the head office.
Moreover, we provided relief to those affected by the Kumamoto Earthquake in 2016. We offered assistance through our business, such as by waiving communications fees and setting up communications services in evacuation centers including OCN Hikari Flet’s and OCN Mobile ONE services.
We will continue to offer assistance for reconstruction after natural disasters strike.
