Accelerating Adaptation Measures by Using Digital Technology to Implement Adaptation Finance in Society
NEC's environmental initiatives are not only from the mitigation of Climate Change aspect but also from the adaptation aspect.
In order to promote disaster prevention and mitigation measures, which are still inadequate despite the importance of adaptation measures in the midst of the frequent occurrence of weather-related disasters in recent years, it is considered necessary to fully recognize the value of adaptation measures and thereby accelerate the introduction of funds. By promoting the visualization of adaptation value, NEC would like to propose new adaptation finance approaches based on adaptation value and to promote the value with various global partners.
In addition to adaptation finance, NEC will introduce a system for realizing a recycling-oriented society through aluminum recycling, which has been demonstrated in Japan, as well as digital transformation (DX) solutions for disaster prevention and mitigation globally. Moreover, NEC's North American Research Center will introduce its Green Supply Chain. In order to promote "adaptation finance for the realization of a society that is resilient to climate change," NEC aims to build a system to quantitatively evaluate the value of disaster mitigation by predicting damage based on disaster simulations that take into account the mitigation effects of disaster prevention solutions.
NEC will continue to contribute to the realization of a sustainable global environment through the visualization of environmental impacts and the creation of social systems that enable the efficient use of energy and resources.
Takayuki Morita, President and CEO of NEC, made a keynote speech at COP28
Accelerating Adaptation Measures by Using Digital Technology to
Implement Adaptation Finance in Society
December 2, 10:00- In local time
UNFCCC (GeSI) Pavilion: Blue Zone MR02G1
The theme of the keynote session was "Advancing Climate Adaptation with Digital Technology" .
Recent years have seen a surge in weather-related disasters, highlighting the urgency for effective adaptation measures. Despite ongoing efforts, current disaster prevention measures remain insufficient.
Recognizing the full value of adaptation measures and accelerating the investment based on this recognition is crucial.
Digital technologies provide a clear and measurable understanding of the value brought by disaster prevention efforts and NEC will promote "adaptation finance" based on this value.
NEC is driving these efforts working with various global partners in its commitment to a decarbonized society better equipped to face the challenges of climate change.
