NEC Named to the CDP "A List" for advanced Climate Change and Water Security initiatives


TOKYO, Feb 05, 2020 - (JCN Newswire) - NEC Corporation today announced its selection to the CDP(1) "A List" for its initiatives in the two sectors of Climate Change and Water Security. This is the first time that NEC has been named to the A List, as the CDP recognizes the company's commitment to climate change and sustainable water management.

 


NEC announced its climate change policy guidelines aimed at 2050(2) in July 2017, and has positioned response to environmental issues centered on climate change as one of its top management priorities. NEC declared its support for the Recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)(3) in July 2018, received Science Based Targets (SBT) approval(4) in October 2018, and is working to expand the use of green power to achieve environmental goals. In addition, NEC is reducing the amount of water used at each of the company's sites, and is supporting disaster countermeasures through the provision of river flood prediction systems using AI and IoT.

The NEC Group globally promotes its Solutions for Society business, which creates social value in terms of safety, security, efficiency, and fairness. Going forward, NEC will integrate advanced ICT and expertise in support of creating an efficient and sophisticated society in which people can lead brighter and more prosperous lives.
