Initiatives for Governance
The IDEC Group believes that securing management transparency and efficiency for all our stakeholders is the basis of corporate governance. To this end, we implemented the corporate officer system in 1998. We clarify our system wherein the CEO or executive officers who have been transferred authority from the CEO primarily carry out the execution of work, and the Board of Directors primarily makes decisions in management and supervises the execution of work performed by the CEO or executive officers. This not only separates the functions for work execution from supervising, but also aims for efficient management. Also, to ensure even further management transparency, we actively assign and appoint outside directors, further improving the supervisory and auditing function for the execution of work.
