NTT Launches IoT Services for Sustainability

NTT Ltd.’s newly launched Sustainability IoT Services include An optical-based meter reader, IoT enabled protection against water damage, sensors to predict potential downtime, accidents or when something might need to be replaced. There is also the capacity for Environmental Monitoring using sensors to identify the presence of pollutants in the air and water as well as tracking temperature and humidity. 

 “IoT technologies are an essential tool in the global fight against climate change,” said Jeff Merritt, Head of Urban Transformation at the World Economic Forum. “We know what actions are needed to build a more sustainable future and have a robust suite of technologies available to help deliver this impact. As the world looks to accelerate the implementation of these solutions, organisations like NTT will have a critical role to play in helping companies and governments capitalise on this opportunity.” 

 This announcement follows the appointment of two industry veterans to drive growth and momentum across NTT’s IoT and sustainability initiatives. Wireless industry leader Devin Yaung has been appointed as SVP of Group Enterprise IoT Products and Services, NTT Ltd., bringing over 25 years of technology experience focused on business transformation. Vicky Bullivant has also been appointed as Senior Vice President, Group Sustainability, NTT Ltd. Vicky has 25 years of creating and delivering successful sustainability, social, climate and ESG strategies that underpin commercial objectives in fast-paced and evolving business environments. 

Almost two-thirds (61.4%) of CEOs say they’re aligning business strategies to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Yet only 2 out of 5 businesses have the solutions needed to meet the organisation’s immediate objectives, said Devin Yaung, SVP of Group Enterprise IoT Products and Services.

 “Therefore, it is more critical than ever to prioritize and deliver sustainability solutions for our enterprise customers. Our new stack of solutions will help organizations reach their sustainability goals and improve operations across their business, whether it is reducing waste from manufacturing defects or understanding the carbon footprint of their supply chain. The use of IoT will empower businesses to make decisions in real-time, streamlining processes and transforming the overall sustainability of their business. We’re proud to be announcing this offering at such a critical time, and we look forward to driving change alongside our clients to create a more sustainable future.”
