Basic Approach to Corporate Governance
The Company believes that contributing to the resolution of issues confronting society, along with supporting stable energy supply, is an integral part of its responsibilities. Based on this belief, we announced our policy of acting as a reliable partner in line with our corporate vision for 2030 and aim to fulfill the following three responsibilities: "Protect the Environment and Lifestyles," "Support Regional Communities," and "Provide for Society with Technological Capabilities." Through these endeavors, we intend to play our part in business domains associated with the energy material transition to a carbon-neutral recycling next-generation mobility and community adapted to an aging and the provision of advanced materials that enable the solution of these.
With this aim in mind, the Company recognizes the importance of constructing positive relationships with all stakeholders, including customers, shareholders, business partners, local communities and employees, by fulfilling its social responsibility as a good corporate citizen, improving management transparency and promoting sound and sustainable growth.
Japan's Corporate Governance Code is aimed at achieving sustainable corporate growth and increasing medium to long-term corporate value through Dialogue with Shareholders. The Company which strives to become a socially respected and highly trusted company believes that it must comply with the code in principle.
The Company attaches great importance to be self-governing, thinking by ourselves and judge ourselves in accordance with our corporate vision for 2030. In addition, the Company openly discusses its business status and management circumstances with Independent Outside Directors and Independent Outside Audit & Supervisory Board Member with a wide range of knowledge and backgrounds and sincerely absorbs their unrestricted views, thereby endeavoring to continue operating in a transparent and fair manner.
