Basic Policies

ASAHI YUKIZAI CORPORATION & Our Group define the basic policies of corporate governance based upon the principles of the corporate governance codes as follows:

Security of stockholder's rights and equality (basic principle 1)

We are making efforts to disclose correct information to every stakeholder quickly and fairly while observing the related laws and regulations (e.g., Financial Instruments and Exchange Act) and the listing rules defined by the Tokyo Stock Exchange. We will also practice continuous improvement for addressing our stockholders properly and faithfully, to ensure substantial security of every stockholder's rights as well as security of the environment and substantial equality to exercise these rights.

Proper cooperation with other stakeholders than stockholders (basic principle 2)

Our corporate spirit is "Challenge, Create, and Change contributing to the affluence in people's life." One our management philosophies to realize this spirit is defined as "For our customers" to provide our partners, stockholders, and region with proper information, to enhance mutual trust, and to make efforts for appropriate cooperation with our stakeholders.
Another management philosophy is "For abiding by laws and social norms and moving forward hand in hand with society" and we are making efforts in compliance education of our employees under the control and command of the executive president in charge of compliance, to respect every stakeholder's rights and position as well as substantial business activity ethics based on this philosophy.

Our board of directors consists of directors including unaffiliated audit and supervisory committee members, and each member grasps the chief operating officer and operating officers (hereafter collectively referred to as "executive officers") and business operating status by the executive officers from his or her specialized viewpoint and gives necessary opinions for supervisory. For management policies such as corporate strategies and important matters related to the environment supporting appropriate risk taking by the executive officers, the executive audit and supervisory committee members join the decision for proper determination according to the "Board of Directors Rules."
