The Seven Themes for Social Value Creation

NEC promotes seven themes for social value creation to achieve "a brighter world"

Identifying the six global megatrends of the future

According to the United Nations, the world's human population will increase to 9.6 billion by 2050. Such a rapid increase in population is likely to give birth to a variety of problems that must be tackled by the global community, including difficulties in securing energy, water, and food resources. Countries and regions around the world are also facing their own unique issues, such as low birth rates and aging populations, the diversification of crimes, and changes in the balance of power due to economic development. The proliferation of the Internet is also a two-sided coin—bringing about global-level innovations on the one hand, but leading to new threats in the form of damaging information leakages and sophisticated cyber attacks on the other.
When identifying and analyzing these global trends in detail, six megatrends become apparent. As a member of the global community, NEC will use these megatrends as a compass to navigate the future, discover new opportunities, and promote tolerance and diversity. Our goal is to create an inclusive society in a Digital New Age through cutting-edge ICT.

Chain of resources and environmental issues
The consumption of water and food due to population growth and urbanization will impact the other resources and environment.

Growth in emerging countries and their new challenges
Rapid economic growth in emerging countries will cause new issues, such as environmental concerns and resource shortage, even as their power grows.

Search for mature society models
In advanced countries, low birthrates, aging of populations, and the deterioration of facilities will encourage reform of the current legal and social systems.

Increase in power and influence of individuals
Advancement of the Internet will raise concerns over cyberattacks, etc. while increasing the influence of individuals on the global stage.

Deconcentration of power
As emerging countries and individuals have more influence, the world will decentralize and form a new power balance.

Diversified threats and needs for safety and security
Big changes in the world will generate various threats to both the real world and the cyber world, and increase demand for safety and security.

Creating new value for society based on seven themes derived from identified global megatrends

NEC has formulated seven themes for social value creation to solve the social issues derived from the six megatrends we have identified. These are the areas we are focusing on as we look to achieve our goal of creating a brighter future for all. The foundation of our management philosophy is to use ICT to design new value together with our customers, partners, and all members of society, and work in harmony to orchestrate a brighter world. This idea embodies our strong will concerning the creation of social value. In addition to our advanced portfolio of ICT assets that include cutting-edge network and computing technologies and our wealth of system construction and service provision know-how and experience, we are also proactively engaged in developing systems that will enable open innovation, lean startup and other forward-looking business methodologies. In addition, NEC promotes a range of activities to combine knowledge from different sectors, such as through collaboration between companies and public organizations, tie-ups between industry, government and academia, and partnering with companies from different industries. While continuing to pursue the creation of essential value for society and our customers, NEC is committed to working in concert with countries and people around the world to create new value based on our seven themes for social value creation.
