The TORIDOLL Group established Risk Management Provisions and created the Risk Management Committee chaired by the President and CEO to comprehensively identify and evaluate risks relating to the execution of business and respond appropriately.
The chair of the Risk Management Committee convenes the committee when risks associated with financial loss due to changes in the internal or external management environment, violations of laws, provisions, and the Company’s Articles of Incorporation, or other reasons are detected to ascertain the facts and issue instructions on the countermeasures to be taken.
The relevant divisions report directly on the details of the identified risks, the extent of the losses that might occur, and other such matters.

Risk Management Committee

The TORIDOLL Group established the Risk Management Committee, which is chaired by the President and CEO and comprises the directors including outside directors as well as the heads of each division. The committee meets four times annually on a regular basis.
The committee analyzes multi-faceted risk assessments including food safety and sanitation and forms task teams to conduct detailed investigations of matters identified as high risk. The full committee then deliberates on risk avoidance and mitigation measures proposed by the individual task teams.
Measures approved by the committee are implemented by each division and then reported and evaluated by the committee, thereby implementing a PDCA cycle.
In addition, the Internal Audit Office performs periodic audits of each headquarters division and store to identify risks at an early stage and reports to management including the President and CEO.

Risk Identification and Response

If an emergency situation that poses a risk of significant impact on Group management occurs, the TORIDOLL Group establishes a Crisis Management Division chaired by the President and CEO to minimize losses, recover from damage, and prevent reoccurrence in accordance with the Crisis Management Provisions and Restaurant Crisis Management Manual. We also establish a group-wide crisis management structure in which outside experts also participate in responses.
