Main Activities of the Board of Directors
JBS is a company with an Audit & Supervisory Board, and while authority and responsibility for business execution concentrates on the Board of Directors, which is the highest decision-making body for management, by having the Audit & Supervisory Board, which consists of unitary auditors, take on the function of auditing the execution of duties by directors, we aim to realize appropriate decision-making and business execution, as well as establish a system in which mutual supervision works as an organization.JBS’s Board of Directors consists of seven Directors including four outside Directors and the President & CEO serves as chairperson. The Board of Directors makes resolutions on legal matters, makes decisions on important management matters, and oversees the execution of business, among other things. In principle, the Board of Directors holds a monthly regular meeting and extraordinary Board of Directors meetings as needed. By having all Audit & Supervisory Board members attend these meetings, we monitor the situation of business execution by the Directors. Moreover, we have established a Steering Committee consisting of the President & CEO, employees cum Directors, and Executive Officers in order to make appropriate and flexible decisions on the execution of duties. The President & CEO serves as chairperson of this committee. The Steering Committee deliberates on the management policy and plan, among other important matters related to the execution of duties.
While JBS has created individual policies related to sustainability, such as an environmental policy and human rights policy, we have not formulated a basic policy on sustainability. Going forward, from the viewpoint of improving the Company’s medium- to long-term corporate value, the Board of Directors intends to formulate a basic policy on sustainability. Additionally, the Board of Directors effectively oversees the allocation of human capital, intellectual property, and other management resources as well as the implementation of a business portfolio strategy through the formulation of a medium-term management plan and reviews thereof. From a medium- to long-term perspective and aiming to collaborate based on business alliances, etc., JBS may cross-hold shares of other listed companies. However, JBS does not currently own any cross-held shares. If JBS should cross-hold shares, the Board of Directors shall verify the propriety thereof, comprehensively considering the appropriateness of the objective, benefits, and risks accompanying the cross-holding.
With regard to transactions with related parties, pursuant to the rules of the Board of Directors, if applicable, the Board of Directors shall vote on the transaction excluding the Director in question as a person of special interest. Additionally, the Company has established rules for transactions with related parties, compiled a list of related parties, and reports on prior approvals and results of such transactions at the Board of Directors. JBS has also established a system to manage transactions between related parties by regularly cross-checking the list of related parties with business partners and conducting questionnaires with related parties to check for transactions between related parties.
