Risk Management

Basic Philosophy

The Nichirei Group has formulated a policy for internal control designed to help bring to fruition its management principles, brand statement, and CSR policy. It has established and implements an internal system to facilitate operational effectiveness and staff ability, ensure the accuracy of financial reports, comply with laws and regulations pertinent to its business, and to protect assets.
With respect to risk management in particular, the Group has set up the Group Risk Management Committee, chaired by the Representative Director and President, to manage the various risks associated with its business activities, in the most appropriate and rational ways from a comprehensive standpoint, and to maximize the corporate Group’s enterprise value. The committee identifies and evaluates Group-wide risks, and Nichirei and its business companies respond to these risks on their own accord, based on the established risk management cycle. Important items are reported to the Board of Directors of Nichirei Corporation, the holding company, which considers the response.

Management System

Recognizing that the actions of each and every employee are important for preventing various risks from occurring, Nichirei established the Code of Conduct, comprised of 12 articles (revised in 2014) relating to compliance and ethical behavior in areas of the environment, society and governance. The Company is committed to reducing risks, such as compliance violations, and publicizes the code to raise awareness.
The Group Risk Management Committee identifies and evaluates Group risks, and develops mechanisms for managing risk in the Group. Any significant risks identified in the risk management process are reported to the Board of Directors of Nichirei Corporation, the holding company, and the response is discussed.

Enhanced Business Continuity Planning (BCP) Response for the Logistics Core System

As part of risk management, from February 2018, the Nichirei Logistics Group worked to strengthen the BCP response for its logistics core system.
The work involved relocating its main data center, which had previously been overconcentrated in Tokyo, to Western Japan, and building a disaster recovery (DR) site capable of rapidly restoring the system in the event of a disaster. By realizing a dual base system that can switch from the main site to the DR site in the event of a major disaster, Nichirei Logistics Group is able to quickly proceed with business recovery. Taking about one hour from DR activation to resuming online operations, every consideration has been given to preventing customers’ businesses and food logistics from being affected under various circumstances. With an aim of also assisting clients with their business continuity, Nichirei Logistics Group will continue to implement advanced initiatives as a lifeline for food distribution.
