Constructive dialogue with shareholders

JVCKENWOOD aims to achieve sustainable growth and enhance corporate value over the medium to long term by having the top management actively in constructive dialogue (engagement) with investors and shareholders. Through such dialogue, JVCKENWOOD conveys its initiatives to those stakeholders to gain their understanding, and works to reflect their opinions and needs in the management strategy and business plan.
