Environmental Management

In order to incorporate environmentally-conscious management into our business and continuously perform environmental activities, JSOL established NTT DATA Group's integrated environment management framework to promote environmental activities.

Environmental Policies of the NTT DATA Group

We believe that, given the increasingly serious nature of global environmental problems, we must address these as management issues and work to resolve the environmental challenges facing the world and society.
The NTT DATA Group, which applies information technology to create new paradigms, contributes to environmental protection by providing systems and solutions that can replace or alleviate the need for actual movement of people and goods. At the same time, by recognizing the major impact of business activities on the environment, we are promoting ongoing and planned approaches to environmental protection, so as to realize a society that is in better harmony with the earth even as it enjoys the abundance of modern life.
