Yet despite having an ambitious future energy savings goal for its solutions, most of the increase in energy in the past year was attributed to more efficient IT products, not from using IT solutions to reduce energy consumption in other areas.

While NEC scored at the same level for its energy impact criteria as it did in last year’s Leaderboard, it loses ground as other companies have notched greater improvements. NEC’s ranking is also reduced due to a negative lobby penalty from its membership in Keidanren, which continues to use its influence to undermine government efforts to put Japan on a cleaner energy pathway.
