Enhancing Corporate Governance
Background and Challenges for Initiatives For corporate activities to comply with the rules of society and meet the expectations of diverse stakeholders, it is necessary to enhance corporate governance with the aim of strengthening competitiveness while ensuring management transparency. To this end, it is essential to clarify the roles and responsibilities of the Board of Directors and other bodies, to make swift decisions, and to promote the separation of management execution and supervision by utilizing outside directors from an independent and objective standpoint, thereby strengthening the monitoring and supervisory functions of the Board of Directors.
ROHM Group aims to strengthen corporate governance, achieve sustainable growth, and increase corporate and shareholder value.

Risk Management
Background and Challenges for Initiatives Amid the diversification of risks surrounding companies in conjunction with economic globalization and changes in society, appropriately managing various internal and external uncertainties related to business is indispensable for the execution of management strategies and business objectives. Even if we suffer damage from a large-scale natural disaster, accident, infectious disease, or other epidemic, etc., it is an important responsibility as a company to ensure that critical operations are not interrupted, and that recovery and resumption of operations are carried out in the shortest possible time in the unlikely event of interruption. ROHM Group considers "risk management" to be an important management issue for the business foundation, and considers events that may interfere with operations and business performance as "risks" and minimizes the occurrence of such events, and takes measures to ensure business continuity and recovery smoothly even when events occur.
