Corporate Governance Code
In March 2015, “The Council of Experts Concerning the Corporate Governance Code” (Chairman: Kazuhito Ikeo, Professor of Economics and Finance, Keio University), for which the Financial Services Agency and Tokyo Stock Exchange, Inc. serve as joint secretariat, confirmed and announced “Japan’s Corporate Governance Code [Final Proposal]~Seeking Sustainable Corporate Growth and Increased Corporate Value over the Mid- to Long-Term~” based on the Japan Revitalization Strategy (Revised in 2014, Cabinet decision in June 2014). In response, the Corporate Governance Code, which consists of the content of this original draft proposal for this Code, was formulated on the Tokyo Stock Exchange and other financial securities exchanges. Application of the Corporate Governance Code began in June 2015.
Corporate governance is a mechanism for companies to carry out transparent, fair, timely and decisive decision-making, with due attention to the needs and perspectives of shareholders and also customers, employees and local communities. The Corporate Governance Code encourages individual companies’ self-motivated actions so as to achieve sustainable growth and increase corporate value over the medium to long term and aims to promote the development and success of companies, investors and the Japanese economy as a whole.
