Governance

Basic Approach to Corporate Governance

The Nippon Denko Group has deemed the two-pronged system of a Board of Directors and an Audit & Supervisory Board to be useful for ensuring the efficiency and fairness of its business management, and has adopted the company with a board of company auditors format. Specifically, the Board of Directors, which comprises mainly Executive Directors well-versed in the Group’s businesses, makes decisions about the execution of important operations and supervises the directors’ execution of duties, and members of the Audit & Supervisory Board equipped with legally robust auditing authority audit the directors’ execution of duties and strive to enhance the supervisory functions of management from a fair, unbiased, and independent perspective.
