Our way of doing business

The JT Corporate Governance Policy, implemented in 2016, stipulates how the JT Group manages and enhances its corporate governance. This policy has been designed to promote transparent, fair, and timely decision-making that carefully considers the respective interests of consumers, shareholders, employees, and the wider society. In 2016 we declared compliance with all of the principles of Japan's Corporate Governance Code. The JT Board of Directors holds ultimate responsibility for administration and supervision of our activities, and is supported by a governance structure that includes bodies such as the JT Group Compliance Committee and the Compensation Advisory Panel.
