ESG

Basic Perspective on Corporate Governance

Based on the Dentsu Group’s corporate philosophy of Good Innovation, we are working to resolve issues stakeholders face by leveraging our core competencies in the marketing and communications domains. We thus aim to both create new value for society and contribute to the realization of a sustainable society.

Dentsu’s Structure for Promoting Corporate Governance

In 2016, Dentsu transitioned to a company with an Audit and Supervisory Committee. We have transferred the authority to conduct some important business from the Board of Directors to the directors, in the interest of having a swift and effective business execution system. At the same time, we have reinforced the supervisory function of the Board of Directors over directors. As of April 1, 2017, the Board of Directors comprises 12 directors (of whom four are independent outside directors). We have appointed four directors who are Audit and Supervisory Committee members (of whom three are outside directors). Among the factors considered in nominating members of the Board of Directors are diversity in experience, insight and gender.

Under the Board of Directors is the Executive Management Committee, comprising executive officers, including the representative director and executive directors. This committee makes decisions on important matters relating to management and conducts preliminary deliberations on Board of Directors agenda items. The Executive Management Committee delegates decisions on important matters related to Japan business departments to the Business Supervision Committee, while decisions on important matters related to international business departments are delegated to the Dentsu Aegis Network Board of Directors. The Group uses this business execution structure for delegating revenue-related responsibility and authority for the Japan and international business departments.
