Corporate Governance and Compliance

この取り組みを通じて目指すゴール: Goal:

Achieve the trust of Mercari Group stakeholders (such as users, society, shareholders, and investors)

Improve the resilience of Mercari Group (adaptability to societal changes and unpredictable situations)


Plans for Initiatives

To achieve our mission of "circulate all forms of value to unleash the potential in all people," Mercari Group aims to contribute to society by creating a circular economy based on our values of Go Bold, All for One, and Be a Pro.
We also believe that in order to acquire the trust of stakeholders and sustainably enhance our corporate value, it is essential to improve the fairness and transparency of management and promote sound risk-taking by continuously enhancing our corporate governance structure.
We have established a basic corporate governance policy with the goal of enhancing effectiveness by discussing, carrying out, and continuously improving corporate governance measures.
We have also established an ESG Committee and appointed one officer for each of our companies, for a total of seven ESG officers. Having these officers offer an ESG perspective in business-related management decisions allows us to balance our businesses and materiality-focused ESG initiatives, and ensures a structure that allows us to swiftly implement and promote these initiatives.


Strategies for Initiatives

  • Structure and strategies for corporate governance

    The Board of Directors, composed of directors well-versed in business and outside directors with an objective point of view, leads business management direction and makes executive business decisions, while the Audit and Supervisory Board audits the Board of Directors from an independent standpoint. Moreover, through the establishment of the Nomination and Remuneration Committee mostly composed of independent outside directors, we have ensured the fairness and transparency of decisions regarding the nomination and remuneration of top management.

  • Structure and strategies for compliance and risk management

    For us to fulfill our social responsibilities, achieve continuous growth, and increase our corporate value, we consider securing and training talent and adhering to compliance as major topics for the future growth of our businesses. We strive for thorough adherence to compliance through not only the recruitment of well-experienced experts in each field, but also continuous training for our employees.

  • Structure and strategies for security

    To live up to the trust of our users and society at large, and provide a service which people can feel at ease using, we have announced and adhere to our Information Security Policy. Specifically, we take on initiatives to continuously improve security measures and send out alerts for security matters across the Group.

  • Structure and strategies for data privacy

    By collecting information about the users of the various services offered by Mercari Group, we can adapt the services to provide a better experience. At the same time, Mercari Group is aware of the major responsibility that comes with collecting user information. We adhere to all laws, ordinances, and guidelines, such as the Act on the Protection of Personal Information, and have the utmost regard for user privacy while collecting said information.
