Tokyo, Japan - December 3, 2021- NTT Corporation (NTT) has revised its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction target in the new environment and energy vision "NTT Green Innovation toward 2040". The Science Based Targets (SBT)1 initiative approves NTT Group's FY2030 GHG reduction target based on limiting global temperature rise to no more than 1.5°C.
The NTT Group formulated the new environment and energy vision "NTT Green Innovation toward 2040"2 on September 28, 2021. The NTT Group aims to reduce GHG emissions by 80% (carbon neutrality for mobile and data centers sectors) by FY2030 and to be carbon-neutral by FY2040.
With respect to Scope 1 (direct emissions by businesses, such as fuel combustion) and Scope 2 (indirect emissions from the use of electricity, heat and steam supplied by other companies), we have raised the NTT Group's FY2030/31 GHG emissions reduction target from 30% (Well-below 2°C level, approved in 2020) to 80% (1.5 °C level), and is approved by the SBT initiative.
