Corporate Governance

Our management philosophy is to create new value with a sincere spirit and to be a visual communications group that provides "surprise and excitement" to people around the world. Recognizing that corporate governance is a key group management issue to achieve these goals, we are working to implement various measures to improve management transparency, achieve compliance, adhere to corporate ethics, and accelerate decision-making.

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors makes management decisions and supervises the execution of business operations.
In accordance with our Board of Directors Regulations, the Board of Directors holds regular meetings once a month and extraordinary meetings as needed to decide on matters stipulated by laws and our Articles of Incorporation, as well as important management matters of the group.

While the survey found that certain improvements had been made with respect to issues raised in the previous survey, we will further strive for regular deliberations concerning business issues and strategies.

Risk Management

The group identifies and evaluates risks associated with the execution of the imaging business at each group company for each fiscal year, and prepares and updates a risk map.

The group works to control risks by setting the priority of control activities for identified risks each fiscal year and holding regular group-wide meetings.
