NTT defines strategic framework to commit to net zero emissions by 2040

0 147

NTT Ltd., a global technology and business solutions provider, has announced a series of commitments to reduce its carbon footprint and create a connected future that is both more sustainable and inclusive for all. NTT will work to achieve net zero emissions across its operations by 2030 and its value chain by 2040. It is also driving towards powering its Global Data Center Division – an operation of almost 600,000m2 across 20 countries and regions – with 100 per cent renewable energy by 2030 as an urgent priority.

Additionally, NTT is proud to have joined the United Nation’s Race to Zero campaign. This follows the company joining the Business Ambition Pledge for 1.5°C and committing to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). These initiatives are regarded as the gold standard for corporate climate action. They aim to support businesses who are committing to ambitious targets to limit global warming to 1.5°C and avoid the worst effects of climate change.

Abhijit Dubey, Global Chief Executive Officer, NTT Ltd.’s commented, “As one of the largest technology companies in the world, we have an obligation to make the world a more sustainable place. Employees, customers and partners are demanding that companies become more purpose-led. This is core to our NTT heritage, and I am incredibly proud to be announcing our commitment to reach net zero emissions and broader strategic sustainability goals. This is a significant step for us, which will see NTT using technology not only to help the world become more sustainable, but also to be connected long into the future. We will continue making investments in technology, people and programs to achieve these goals.”

Commenting on the NTT’s sustainability commitments, Marilyn Chaplin, Chief Human Resources and Sustainability Officer, NTT Ltd., said, “We know that the greatest opportunity to make a positive impact is through our people, operations, and our core business solutions. This strategic framework gives us clear direction towards making a tangible difference across societies, the economy and our planet. It also provides us with an opportunity to further support our existing initiatives, such as the Connected Conservation Foundation, which uses technology to reduce poaching, and ROBOCEAN, a startup looking to reduce climate change through the conservation of seagrass. I look forward to working with our talented and diverse ecosystem of stakeholders to help accelerate the change we need to see in the world and making these commitments a reality.”
