Structure & System

We established the Risk Management Committee under the supervision of the Corporate Governance Committee, and have put in place a system for cross-organizational risk management by preparing various regulations and manuals in order to properly respond to crises and prevent potential business continuity risks.
• Risk Management Committee: Comprised of the heads and chiefs of the six business units, and held twice a year. The Committee shares internal risk information, evaluates risks, identifies important risks, considers response policies, and reports and proposes policies for dealing with risks, as well as measures to prevent recurrence to the Board of Directors. The committee improves risk management awareness within each business unit, primarily by adopting the policies determined within that business unit, understanding the status of implementation, and providing education.


Process for Identifying Risks

The Kansai Paint Group uses risk management tools to predict anticipated business risks and improve the accuracy of predictions to reliably implement its growth strategy and sustainably enhance corporate value, even in an environment of increasing global economic and geopolitical uncertainty. We are continuing to strengthen our resilience to enable the Group to accurately ascertain conditions and respond swiftly to all types of risk and change through proper management of them.

Information security countermeasures

The Information Security Committee was established in April 2022 to implement technical countermeasures and Company-wide information management and strengthen security. During the initial year of operation in FY2022, the committee improved both the hard and soft aspects of response capabilities by providing year-round training to employees through e-learning and drills on targeted email attacks, in addition to physical response.
