NTT launches IoT services for sustainability

NTT has launched its IoT Services for Sustainability offering – a set of solutions that aim to enable businesses to advance with their progression against global sustainability initiatives and make data-driven decisions to reduce their carbon footprint using IoT connectivity.

The enhanced solutions include OCR meter reading, water leak management, predictive maintenance and environmental monitoring.

NTT’s IoT services for sustainability stack incorporates a secure IT/OT integration and end-to-end support, helping organizations to quickly see the benefits of the technology across the entire business following deployment. Benefits from these solutions include energy savings, faster reduction in emissions, advanced operational excellence, and better work enablement across the organization.

The launch 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 senior vice president of group enterprise IoT products and services, along with Vicky Bullivant who joins as senior vice president of group sustainability.

Jeff Merritt, head of urban transformation at the World Economic Forum, said: “IoT technologies are an essential tool in the global fight against climate change. 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, organizations like NTT will have a critical role to play in helping companies and governments capitalize on this opportunity.”
