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 association, and privacy.
We provide all employees with clear information on human rights. We conduct human rights due diligence to identify, assess, and remedy actual and potential human rights risks in our operations.
To mitigate risks and impacts related to significant human rights considerations across JTI operations we continuously improve our strategy to ensure our due diligence measures are effective. In addition, we collaborate with non-governmental organizations and business partners to improve situations where human rights may be at risk.
