What does this mean for JTI?
We are committed to acting with integrity in all our business dealings and have a zero-tolerance approach to bribery and corruption in all countries in which we operate.
Bribery involves giving or receiving something of value (typically money) in return for a business advantage. Corruption is the abuse of power for personal gain.
Facilitation payments are a form of bribery and typically involve small gifts or payments to public officials in return for carrying out or speeding up a routine service.
Breaking bribery and corruption laws can result in criminal investigation and prosecution, as well as potential financial penalties for JTI and any employees involved.
