What does this mean for JTI?
Human rights are universal norms that apply equally to every person, irrespective of where they are in the world, covering such topics as equal opportunities, labor standards, freedom of speech and privacy.
We provide all employees with clear information on human rights and we conduct impact assessments to identify and mitigate potential human rights issues.
We collaborate with international organizations, non-governmental organizations and private companies to improve situations where human rights may be at risk. We take special precautions to mitigate the risk of child labor in our operations and work to eradicate child labor in communities where it is a culturally accepted practice.
