NTT DATA Group has strived to reduce the environmental impact of its IT systems and business activities. NTT DATA has formulated "NTT DATA Carbon Neutral Vision 2050", addressing climate change issues that have become increasingly serious in recent years.
Information technology has brought many innovations to our lives. In this sence responding to climate change, the use of information technology is essential.
"Green Innovation of IT" promotes our own efforts to make carbon neutral.
"Green Innovation by IT" aims to contribute to the realization of carbon neutrality for clients and society as a whole, and enhances our company's ability to respond to climate change (resilience) in the event of abnormal weather, by utilizing digital technologies and collaborating with clients.
Through these two "Green Innovation", we aim to realize new society in response to climate change.
Based on our unweaving commitment to "create a better society through information technology," we will aim to tackle climate change issues with advanced technologies.
Representative Director and Senior Executive Vice President
Based on its environmental policies and targets, NTT DATA established "NTT DATA Carbon-neutral Vision 2050" to realize carbon neutrality by 2050.
NTT DATA has revised the NTT DATA Carbon-neutral Vision 2050, its plan for responding to climate change, by adding a new long-term target of achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050. To ensure that targets are met by 2050, NTT DATA has also set a near-term target for carbon neutrality in Scope 1 and 2 by 2040.
To realize carbon-neutral society by 2050, NTT DATA promotes Green Innovation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across its supply chain, while contributing to the greening of clients and society.
We commit to achieving carbon neutrality in Scope 1 and 2 by 2040, and net zero in Scope 1, 2, and 3 by 2050.
In November 2020, NTT DATA established the Climate Action Committee under the NTT DATA Carbon- Neutral Vision 2050 to promote company-wide efforts to tackle climate change issues. Through this committee, we will manage the activities of each business division and strengthen initiatives for social contribution through our business, such as green business, green power, green purchasing, and workstyle innovation.

Our group established greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction targets for 2030, and received certification from the SBT (Science Based Targets) initiative.
|Our group's greenhouse gas emission reduction targets||Scope 1 and Scope 2
60% reduction from FY 2016 level by FY 2030 (1.5℃ target)
55% reduction from FY 2016 level by FY 2030
In September 2021, NTT DATA joined "Green Software Foundation",an initiative to develop software development specifications that meet global standards.
Through these activities, we will contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions by society as a whole not only from the hardware side but also from the software side such as system development and operation.

Established NTT DATA Quantum Computer/Next-Generation Architecture Laboratory in January 2019.
Quantum computers can instantaneously calculate the optimal solution that would explode when using conventional computers, helping to reduce energy load and solve climate change problems through many optimizations.
For example, by optimizing the delivery route for beverage and change replenishment to vending machines by multiple trucks, we will reduce traffic volume and contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases.
The Mitaka Data Center EAST was established in April 2018 to reduce environmental impact and build a safe and secure social infrastructure.
The environmental performance of use of reclaimed water(*1) and high-efficiency air conditioners has been evaluated, and we have obtained GOLD certification for LEED(*2) version 4.
This is the first data center facility in Japan to acquire certification.
By adopting a system in which natural energy (outside air) is directly taken in and circulated throughout the building, power consumption for air conditioning is greatly reduced and environmental impact is reduced.
A total of 90 kW of solar panels are installed on the roof, contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gases by using clean energy.
As climate change causes extreme weather events and disasters on a global scale, it is necessary to develop disaster-resistant cities, airports, ports, and other social infrastructure such as electricity, as well as to conserve forest resources.
In order to do this, it is necessary to consider the characteristics of the location (suitability and vulnerability of infrastructure installation), and to do so, it is necessary to analyze a high-precision 3D map and various information in combination.
NTT DATA has supported more than 2,000 projects in more than 130 countries using AW3D.
AW3D is a "digital world 3D map" that uses satellite images captured by satellites with the world's highest accuracy, and NTT DATA collaborates with the Remote Advanced Technology Center to process and provide world-class image processing.
In collaboration with the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), NTT DATA is undertaking research to improve the accuracy of 3D maps by utilizing new technologies being developed by JAXA.
After the realization, we plan to conduct research on the application of the urban digital twin(*4) to smart cities and the understanding of forest resources to the environmental field.
