The Japanese corporate governance model is quite a unique approach. Governance largely takes shape in two main legal arrangements: one between shareholders, customers, suppliers, creditors, and employee unions; the other between administrators, managers, and shareholders. In 2021 the Tokyo Stock Exchange issued Japan’s Corporate Governance Code, noting that in their eyes, corporate governance is “a structure for
transparent, fair, timely and decisive decision-making by companies, with due attention
to the needs and perspectives of shareholders and also customers, employees and local
communities.” This webinar will consider the application of the Corporate Governance Code and the results thereof.

Over the past couple of years, several influential reports have altered the course of corporate governance in Canada. These reports brought an increasing focus on enhancing governance practices in Canada and included High Performance in the Boardroom, authored by Tony Gaffney and Katie Taylor in November 2020, and the Peter Dey and Sara Kaplan’s 360° Governance: Where are the Directors in a World in Crisis in February 2021. The guidance brings a focus to three critical aspects: (i) the corporation’s purpose; (ii) engagement with stakeholders and considerations of their needs, interests and expectations; and (iii) practical considerations of board composition, corporate remuneration and long-term sustainability.
