Basic Approach to Corporate Governance

The Kansai Paint Group’s management philosophy is to “contribute to society by providing products and services that satisfy our customers.” We believe that increasing the satisfaction of our customers through the coatings business, which is the core business of the Group, is the foundation and reason for the Group’s existence, and that our commitment to contributing to the society at large by enhancing the corporate value through the realization of customer satisfaction enables the Group to contribute to its stakeholders including the shareholders, business partners, employees and local community.
Corporate governance is regarded as an important management task in order to realize continuous improvement of corporate value. In order to ensure that the concept of “profit and fairness,” the cornerstone of our corporate activities, is understood and acted upon by Group officers and employees, we will work toward improved awareness through putting into effect various measures.
