SUSTAINABILITY

Infra-Sharing is a solution for sharing telecommunications networks, which has been independently
developed by each mobile network operator traditionally. Infra-Sharing is an effective solution for realizing a sustainable society that not only reduces costs and enables more efficient network development, but also reduces environmental impact by reducing electricity consumption, materials and construction works.
JTOWER believes that Infra-Sharing in itself leads to the realization of Sustainable Society.

MESSAGE

We have established General Meeting of Shareholders, Board of Directors, Audit & Supervisory Board, and Accounting Auditors as organizations under Companies Act. The Board of Directors, which is composed mainly of directors who are familiar with our business, carries out basic management policies and important business execution decisions and Audit & Supervisory Board, which is composed entirely of outside Audit & Supervisory Board Members, conducts audits from a fair and independent perspective by Audit & Supervisory Board Members with expertise in each field. We believe the current system is effective in ensuring the soundness, transparency and efficiency of management.

Compliance

We regard compliance as a fundamental management policy. We have set Compliance Rules with the aim of ensuring thorough compliance by managements and employees, as well as sound and appropriate management and business execution, and are working to ensure compliance.

Compliance System

We are implementing various initiatives to ensure thorough compliance by establishing a compliance system in which the head of Corporate Department is responsible for company-wide compliance. In addition, the person in charge of internal audits under the direct control of Representative Director and President is appointed to conduct periodic audits of the business execution and compliance status of each department, and the evaluation is reported to Representative Director and President and Audit & Supervisory Board Members.

Compliance Hotline

Corruption prevention initiatives

We have set Compliance Rules and Anti-Bribery and Corruption Rules which do not allow any bribery or corruption, and our managements and employees shall not be involved in any bribery or corruption. We strive for fair transactions based on the premise of compliance with the anti-corruption laws of each country and will continue to strengthen our anti-corruption efforts.

Basic Approach and Systems to Exclude Anti-Social Forces

Our basic policy is to not have any relationships with antisocial forces and to reject any unfair demands, and we have clearly stated this in various internal rules and regulations. In addition, when it is found that a business partner is an individual, company, or organization involved with antisocial forces, the business is terminated.
Corporate Department acts as the responsible department for antisocial forces, and centrally manages and accumulates related information. In the event of undue claims by antisocial forces, we cooperate with the police, external law firms, and other external specialized organizations to establish a cooperative system in the event of an emergency.

Training

Annual training plans are established for managements and employees, and regular training sessions are conducted on compliance, harassment, prevention of insider trading, information security and other subjects.
