NTT Data Accelerates Net-Zero Transition Commitment
June 13, 2023 by Joe Panettieri
NTT Data, the global IT consulting and IT services company led by CEO Yo Honma, has accelerated its net-zero carbon emissions plan by 10 years. Indeed, NTT Data's new target deadline for net-zero greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) is now 2040 -- compared to the previous target of 2050.
What drove the accelerated deadline? The new deadline was "developed in response to the growing call worldwide to accelerate measures to achieve Net-Zero carbon emissions," the company said in a statement.
Take a closer look at the plan, and the company now aims to:
Achieve Net-Zero for direct and indirect emissions from its own operations (Scope 1 and 2) for data centers by 2030;
the entire company including offices and other facilities by 2035; and
its entire supply chain (Scope 3) by 2040.
