Live our Code

Dear colleague,

Welcome to the latest version of the JTI Code of Conduct. It has been updated and is now easily accessible online and through mobile devices.

The Code has a meaning to each of us. To some of you, it is a description of who we are as a Company and the ethical standards which we all commit to. To others, it is a guide to help decide what to do in every situation. To me, it’s also a reminder of why I have been proud to work for this Company for over 35 years.

At its heart, the Code outlines our commitments in four key areas: our people, our products, our business integrity and our role in society. It describes what is expected of each of us, regardless of our level in the Company, function or market. For situations which are unclear Your Guide can help you work through your decisions and feel more confident about having made the right choices.

I encourage all Line Managers to lead by example and promote ethical behavior within their teams. I expect them to create environments that promote understanding and open discussion, in which employees feel comfortable speaking up. It is only through our common commitment to ‘doing the right thing’ that we will meet our business goals and ensure that the true spirit of JTI is preserved and reinforced.

Use the Code in your dealings with colleagues, partners or suppliers, discuss it, understand it and, most importantly, live it. Every day.

One Team. One Conduct. Our Success.
