Director Skills Matrix

The Board of Directors consists of twelve members including four independent outside directors with expertise. We strive to ensure diversity by appointing one female independent outside director at the Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders held in 2020. Directors utilize their knowledge, experience, and abilities to make decisions and supervise the business executions in order to realize the long-term vision and the three-year business plan.
In addition to the expertise and experience of each director, all directors are engaged in management from the perspective of sustainability. The Company will continue our efforts to further strengthen sustainability.
