Corporate Governance


Corporate Governance Structure

SATO employs an Executive Committee system that separates corporate decision-making and oversight functions from operational execution while ensuring oversight from external auditors to strengthen executive impartiality and transparency.

The Board of Directors comprises 11 members, 6 of which are independent external members, including two female directors. By utilizing directors with independent perspectives, SATO strives to strengthen executive oversight.

The Board has no set hierarchy and the position of chairperson is also held by external directors in a rotating system.

SATO also employs an Audit & Supervisory Board system with four auditors (two of whom are external and one female) who regularly convene to discuss important supervisory issues and work closely with accounting auditors to achieve full independence and ensure corporate transparency.

*External executives are selected based on the unique criteria used by the stock exchange to ensure independence.
