NTT CORPORATION (NTT) has joined the Joint Audit Cooperation (JAC) 1, which conducts CSR audits of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) suppliers globally. NTT is the first Asian telecommunications carrier to join the association and will contribute to realizing a sustainable society by building and maintaining a safe and secure supply chain.

JAC Overview
Established in 2010, JAC currently consists of 23 telecommunications companies, including NTT 2. Since its inception, JAC members have conducted more than 724 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) audits in 41 countries.
