Recent activities to establish and promote environmental protection: one step ahead of the times

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This report surveys NTT's latest environment protection activities as well as the history and background of NTT's environment protection issues. As part of NTT's efforts in building the NTT group environmental promotion systems, we set up in November 1997 six committees, each responsible for studying one of the following issues: reduction of carbon dioxide, storage and handling of PCBs, disposal and recycling of wastes, building a telecommunications network to reduce the load on the environment, research and development of services and systems to make environmental contributions, and life cycle assessment. These committees are currently examining basic policies regarding each of these issues. All these issues are major themes that require the efforts of the entire company, led by the Global Environmental Protection Action Committee. In May 1998, an outline of the NTT Group's Environmental Policies to be adopted following NTT's reorganization was determined.
