Corporate Governance

Adapting to the Corporate Governance Code

The Company has taken steps to respond to the Corporate Governance Code enacted in June 2015. In October 2015, the Company broadly defined its basic approach to corporate governance and formulated the FUJIFILM Holdings Corporation Corporate Governance Guidelines with the goal of maintaining accountability to stakeholders.

In the Guidelines, the company discloses some items such as evaluation of the effectiveness of the Board of Directors, selection criteria for Director Candidates and Audit & Supervisory Board Member Candidates, criteria for independence of Outside Directors and Outside Audit and Supervisory Board Members, and policy on training of Directors and Audit & Supervisory Board Members.

Corporate Governance Structure

FUJIFILM Holdings has positioned the board of directors as the organization for determining basic Group management policies and strategies and other important matters relating to business execution, as well as supervising the implementation of business affairs. The company’s Articles of Incorporation stipulate that the board can consist of up to 12 directors. Currently, the board has 12 directors, including two outside directors. To better clarify their missions and responsibilities, the directors have a one-year term of office. The attendance of outside directors to the board of directors meetings held during the term ended March 2016 was 89% (nine meetings in total). Additionally, FUJIFILM Holdings has adopted an executive officer system to facilitate speedier business execution. The Company currently has 12 executive officers, including six concurrently serving as Board members. The executive officers have a one-year term of office, the same as the Company’s Directors. The Company discloses the number of individuals to whom remuneration is paid and the total amount of remuneration by Directors as well as Audit and Supervisory Board members. Meanwhile, we have adopted a remuneration system under the stock option program to make its directors and executive officers, excluding outside directors, share a mutual interest—the effect of stock price fluctuations—with its shareholders. In this way, the directors and executive officers are in actual fact encouraged to have stronger drive and morale toward achieving higher corporate value.

Corporate Governance Structure


FUJIFILM Holdings has adopted a system of Audit & Supervisory Board, which currently consists of four members, including two outside members. Each Audit & Supervisory Board member attends the board of directors, while full-time members attend all Management Council meetings in order to assess our overall business operations.

The attendance of outside auditors to the board of directors meetings held during the term ended March 2016 was 100% (nine meetings in total). Also, the attendance of outside auditors to the Audit & Supervisory Board meetings held during the term ended March 2016 was 100% (11 meetings in total). In addition, FUJIFILM Holdings has the Internal Audit Division with a staff of eight, which is independent of the business execution divisions. The division is responsible for auditing the Group companies, in cooperation with or sharing tasks with the internal audit divisions of such companies, in order to assess and verify that the execution of these processes is fair and valid.
