Building upon our corporate brand statement “Orchestrating a brighter world,” NEC is committed as a social value innovator to providing value that leverages the power of ICT. In setting our direction for this, we first analyzed worldwide economic, social, and technological trends, narrowing them down to six megatrends. Viewed from the long-term perspective, these are the issues that will likely confront countries, companies, communities and people for the next 20 or 30 years. Based on these megatrends, we established seven themes for social value creation, taking advantage of our strengths in ICT. To maintain our own sustainable development while simultaneously achieving a sustainable society, NEC is committed to providing social value centered on these seven themes.
