An Overview of Our Progress and Achievements in Corporate Social Responsibility

Dentsu's Corporate Governance Implementation Structure

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).

Under the Board of Directors is the Group Executive Management Committee, comprising executive officers, including the representative director and executive directors. This committee makes decisions on important matters relating to management of whole group and conducts preliminary deliberations on Board of Directors agenda items. The Dentsu Domestic Board 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.

We will reinforce the medium and long-term enhancement/improvement in the corporate value and maintain the soundness, efficiency and transparency of management in this system.
