To maximize corporate value, Sekisui Chemical Group has built its management structure based on a system of three division companies. Believing that increasing the transparency and fairness of management and pursuing swift decision-making are important to continually increasing corporate value amid a changing business environment, it implements a variety of efforts related to corporate governance.
Together with assigning operating officers specializing in business execution to each division company, an Executive Committee has been established to serve as the top decisionmaking body in each division company. As such, a broad range of authority has been transferred from the Board of Directors to the Executive Committee. The Board of Directors strives to achieve continual improvements in corporate value as an organization responsible for decision on basic policies of Sekisui Chemical Group management as well as high-level decision-making and supervision of business execution.
To advance CSR management powerfully, the CSR Department consists of the sections responsible for groupwide CSR planning and strategy and for the key CSR themes identified as the Environment, CS & Quality, and Human Resources.
As venues for deliberation on CSR management, the CSR Committee and each of four subcommittees — the Environmental Subcommittee, the CS & Quality Subcommittee, the Human Resources Subcommittee, and the Compliance Subcommittee — meet at least once every half-year.
Chaired by the President, the CSR Committee's membership also includes the president of each division company and three representatives of employees — one key group of stakeholders—to help improve deliberation and policies. Each Subcommittee promotes groupwide efforts for Sekisui Chemical Group while ascertaining and deliberating on companywide topics as they relate to matters such as issues involved in the themes of which each subcommittee is in charge and the state of activities in each division company. Under this system, operating officers must take part in the subcommittees concerned with their areas of responsibility.
CSR is put into practice within daily business activities through breaking down the matters deliberated on in the CSR Committee and each subcommittee to their appropriate places in the management plans of each division company and headquarters.
