USJC has duly established the Board of Directors and internal committees as corporate bodies to respect our diverse stakeholders including customers and to respond to them in sincerity and in a timely manner. Through an optimal corporate governance structure, we are working to enhance the transparency and soundness of management and further develop the company.
Corporate Governance Structure
Board of Directors
The Board of Directors consists of eight directors (including one outside director). USJC separates the management supervision function from the execution function, and the Representative Directors and Executive Officers, who are appointed by the Board of Directors, are responsible for the execution of duties. The Board of Directors` meeting is held four times a year in principle to make resolutions on issues required by law and important matters concerning the management of the company and to supervise the execution of duties. Given the size of USJC and the nature of its business, we will maintain an appropriate number of directors, not exceeding nine as stipulated in the Articles of Incorporation, that will enable the Board of Directors to function effectively and efficiently. In addition, we enhance the transparency and soundness of management by appointing independent outside directors.
Risk and Compliance Committee
USJC sets up a Risk and Compliance Committee as an organization to assess the company's risk management and compliance status, and to determine risk management, compliance policies and measures. The Risk Compliance Committee consists of the chairman (President), members (Executive Directors), and specialized members (Senior Directors and Vice Presidents).Business Continuity Management (BCM) Policy
Environmental Promotion Committee

Human Rights Awareness Committee
A Human Rights Awareness Committee is formed as an organization to conduct corporate activities with respect for human rights as its core value.
