NTT Group Partners With ClimateForce to Create World's First Smart Rainforest
ClimateForce is working on the restoration of this section of the Daintree Rainforest, which, over time, has become infested by invasive species following its initial destruction. The project will receive substantial support from NTT in the form of the Smart Management Platform (SMP) Technology and Analytics. NTT DATA, a major player in global digital business and IT services, will provide operational assistance and contribute funds to support the ongoing regeneration work.

Barney Swan, CEO and Co-founder of ClimateForce praised the role of technological solutions in preserving the world's ecosystems, saying, "ClimateForce is a proving ground for technologies that protect biodiversity, and help mitigate climate change. The generous support from NTT and NTT DATA will help us quickly expand our initiative in the Daintree and speed up our goal of developing replicable models that regenerate ecosystems, protect biodiversity, and foster resilient local economies in other locations."
NTT DATA's involvement will expand to include the application of AI, data gathering, and analysis, as well as predictive analytics to assess and enhance organic reforestation methods. The cooperation will also see the tech giant contributing funds to assist ClimateForce in purchasing and protecting the regenerated land in perpetuity.
Bob Pryor, CEO of NTT DATA Services, shared the company's excitement about supporting ClimateForce's mission. He said, "NTT DATA met Barney through our sponsorship of his father's Undaunted: the South Pole 2023 expedition, which advocated for sustainable practices and long-term protections for Antarctica. We're excited to extend this relationship and help ClimateForce with its mission in the tropics, which perfectly aligns with our vision for realizing a sustainable future."
