Development of Governance Structure

In order to contribute to the Company's sustainable growth and medium- to long-term enhancement of corporate value, we have a Board of Directors structure in which one-third of the total number of directors are independent outside directors. In 2022, in order to enhance our corporate governance, we established a voluntary Nominating Committee and Remuneration Committee, the majority of whose members are independent outside directors, to strengthen the fairness, transparency, and objectivity of procedures related to nomination, remuneration, and other matters.

Promoting Compliance

We have established a compliance promotion system to ensure that the execution of duties by employees complies with laws, regulations, and the Articles of Incorporation, as well as with social responsibilities and corporate ethics. To promote compliance, we have developed manuals and policies and provide guidance through training and other means to ensure that all employees, in their respective positions, view compliance as a personal problem and conduct their business operations accordingly. We have also established an internal reporting system that allows employees to report or consult with us regarding potential or actual compliance violations, and we are working to correct and resolve problems as early as possible.

Implementation of Harassment Training

To promote sound organizational management, we incorporate harassment training in management and rank-specific training to prevent various types of harassment and raise employee awareness.

Basic compliance policy

Our company name, Kyoritsu Maintenance, means "to stand together with our customers, with society, and with all those who support us, and to be a firm, secure presence in the world".
In order for a company to survive and continue doing business, it is a prerequisite to abide by the rules of the world and the rules of society. We can only grow when we have the trust of society.
The Group considers compliance to be one of our most important management issues, and adherence to compliance is fundamental to the actions of each and every officer and employee.
We aim to be a company that is trusted and chosen by all stakeholders, including customers, business partners, and shareholders, by ensuring that each and every one of our executives and employees comply with our Compliance Policy (compliance items), which is described in our Compliance Manual, in addition to our management philosophy, action guidelines, and management policies, which are defined in our corporate philosophy.
