Our business integrity

Managing external communications

While only authorized representatives may engage with journalists on behalf of JTI, all employees can engage on social media on publicly disclosed information about JTI, except on financial information.

What does this mean for JTI?

Only JTI senior management, country general managers, a select group of experts and authorized local, regional and global Corporate Affairs and Communications representatives can speak to journalists. All should be media trained at JTI beforehand.

What does this mean to me as an employee?

I am careful about sharing information about JTI on social media, and I only ever refer to information that has been provided by the Company and is publicly available.

I do not post or share confidential information about JTI on social media sites, blogs, chat forums.

As a general rule, if I don’t want to see something on the front page of a national newspaper, I should not post or share it on social media or in any other public forum.

Employees are, of course, free to communicate personal views, but not to use JTI logo or name when communicating them.

Do’s and Don’t’s of social media

  • DO share posts and jobs with your personal networks that have been published by JTI business channels.
  • DO make it clear that opinions are your own.
  • DON'T post confidential information on social media sites.
  • DON'T post confidential information on social media sites.
  • For any questions, please contact Media Relations.
