ASB Basic Approach to Corporate Governance

To maximize corporate value for all parties involved in the company, we aim at improving the efficiency, soundness, fairness and transparency of our management. We believe that maximizing corporate value from the standpoint of shareholders is the basic purpose of corporate governance and is therefore the prime responsibility for management. In the process of business execution, we believe that it is important to make effective the roles of the board of directors, corresponding to the internal organization and division of duties.

Governance System

This company has a board of corporate auditors and has appointed 10 directors (including 3 outside directors) and 3 auditors (including 2 outside auditors).
We have established a “Global Promotion Meeting” consisting of Directors and General Managers. With consideration and deliberation, together they will implement the measures for crucial and management agendas made by the Board of Directors. By determining significant management principles, they are aiming to establish a flexible management structure that can promptly respond to changes in the business environment.

This company has appointed three outside directors to manage and audit the business execution of directors from a neutral and impartial standpoint, and at the same time strengthen the corporate governance.

The internal structure of our Corporate Governance is as follows;
