Our Company / Corporate GovernanceExpert Advisory Boards

JERA is forming Expert Advisory Board ( “EAB”) that will provide expert advice to JERA’s management on honing and implementing its strategy, and its further development as a leading global company in its business domain. EAB will bring together external advisors who are recognized as leaders in the industry.

  1. EAB Purpose and Structure

    The EAB is established by the Board for the purpose of:

    • providing the all Directors and Management access to global experts in the core areas of JERA’s business, in order to:

      ・obtain a global perspective on international trends and JERA’s strategic approach in addressing these trends
      ・provide a forum to discuss and obtain a global perspective on key management and business issues
      ・accelerate the development of JERA as a leading global energy company

    • strengthening JERA’s core values of “diversity” and “excellence”
    • broadening JERA’s network of global contacts and strengthening JERA’s reputation
  2. The EAB will act in an advisory capacity and report directly to the Board and executive management. The EAB is expected to do far more than just provide views on general trends. Rather, JERA engages the EAB members in in-person meetings and substantive discussion of the key business issues that JERA faces. For more detail about JERA’s management, please see:“Directors & Officers”
