Organizational Changes
Changes in the area of corporate affairs


- Mazda will effect organizational changes to enrich and enhance the company's
management, based on social responsibility as the foundation for our business
activities under our long-term vision. The changes will consolidate various corporate
social responsibility (CSR) related activities into a single organization, such as
corporate governance, risk management, environmental protection, corporate
compliance, human rights enhancement, and social contribution activities—which
have been conducted separately until now—and ensure their consistency.

- By separating the internal control promotion and auditing functions within the
Internal Auditing Division, we will further improve the efficiency of control activities
and ensure a more independent and objective auditing process.

- The Corporate Affairs Div. has been renamed the Corporate Services Div.

- The CSR Promotion Dept. has been newly established within the Corporate Services
Div. Partial functions of the Personnel and Labor Affairs Dept., General Affairs Dept.,
Office of Legal Affairs and Internal Auditing Div. have been transferred and
consolidated within it.

- The Internal Auditing Div. has been reorganized and renamed the Global Auditing

- In line with the organizational changes stated above, the Internal Auditing Div. has
been eliminated.
