＜Sustainable Development Goals：SDGs＞
At the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit in September 2015, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by unanimous decision of the 193-member nations. The SDGs are a set of 17 goals and 169 targets to be resolved on a global scale by 2030. Governments around the world are in agreement on these goals. Companies in all industries are positioned as important partners in attaining the SDGs and are being called on to engage in proactive activities to address the SDGs. The NTT Communications Group supports the aims set out under the Sustainable Development Goals and will contribute to the development of a sustainable society through its business activities.
Promoting Global Environmental Management
The NTT Communications Group has placed the utmost importance on advancing its environment strategy in unison with overseas bases. Accordingly, the Group has taken steps to put in place a global-scale environmental management platform since fiscal 2009.
In fiscal 2012, the Group appointed environmental management officers at each of its operating bases in a bid to further enhance and develop its global environmental management structure. From fiscal 2013, energies will be channeled toward convening a global environmental management meeting as a part of efforts to share those initiatives undertaken to reduce environmental load in each country throughout the Group as a whole. At the same time, the Group will pursue and promote a bottom-up approach with respect to environmental management activities.
