Chubu Electric Power Group, as a Multi-Energy Services Group, is committed to:
Contributing to the development of a sustainable society by giving top priority to safety and striving to both provide a stable supply of energy and protect the global environment. We aim to accomplish these goals through business activities that allow the individuality of group companies to be fully expressed while achieving group synergy in enterprises within our core competence in energy; Managing our businesses in a fair and sincere manner by observing national and international laws, regulations, and social rules, and by respecting corporate ethics; and Giving priority to dialogue with all our stakeholders and maintaining high levels of transparency and openness in our business activities.


Corporate Governance

The company transitioned to being a company with an Audit and Supervisory Committee as of the conclusion of the 103rd General Meeting of Shareholders held in June 2021 to enable the transfer of authority from the Board of Directors to Directors, make faster and more efficient decisions, strengthen the supervisory function of the Board of Directors by granting voting rights on the Board of Directors to Directors who are members of the Audit and Supervisory Committee and further enhance corporate governance.

The company has adopted an executive officer system in order to separate management decision-making and supervision from execution, and to expedite business execution. Also, to strengthen management supervisory functions, six of our fourteen directors are outside directors.
Moreover, in order to ensure the effectiveness of audits, the Audit and Supervisory Committee, Internal Audit Department and the accounting auditors maintain close coordination with each other.
We believe that this current system has fully secured the fairness and transparency of management.

a. Board of Directors

In principle, the Board of Directors meets once a month to decide matters for resolution in accordance with the law and our Articles of Incorporation, as well as important management matters, and to supervise the execution of duties by directors. In addition, to strengthen supervisory functions, six of our fourteen directors are outside directors.

Moreover, in order to strengthen the objectivity and transparency of procedures related to the nomination of directors, compensation, etc., we have established a Nomination and Compensation Committee as an optional advisory body of the Board of Directors. In response to inquiries from the Board of Directors, the Nomination and Remuneration Committee deliberates on matters such as the nomination of candidates for director and corporate auditor, the selection and removal of the Representative Director, and compensation for directors (excluding directors who are members of the Audit and Supervisory Committee), and reports thereon to the Board of Directors.
