Corporate Governance


Sony has long been committed to strong corporate governance, as one of its most important management initiatives. As a part of this effort, in 2003, Sony adopted the "Company with Committees" corporate governance system under the Companies Act of Japan. In addition to complying with the requirements of applicable corporate governance laws and regulations, Sony has introduced its own requirements to help improve and maintain the soundness and transparency of its governance by strengthening the separation of the Directors' function from that of management and advancing the proper functioning of the statutory committees. Under Sony's system, the Board of Directors defines the respective areas for which each of the Corporate Executive Officers is responsible and delegates to them decision-making authority to manage the business, thereby promoting the prompt and efficient management of the Sony Group.
