Code of conduct

Our Code of Conduct – the Company’s commitment to employees, business partners and the world about how we conduct business – is essential to achieving our business goals with integrity and in compliance with the law. It defines our responsibilities to each other as employees, to our Company, to our customers and suppliers and to society. The Code covers aspects such as respect for human rights, protection of the environment, data privacy, fair competition, prevention of illegal trade, and our zero tolerance approach to bribery and corruption. We actively support international efforts to fight bribery and corruption and are committed to complying with all anti-bribery and corruption laws in the countries in which we operate. We also expect our business partners - both customers and suppliers - to meet the same standards of conduct.

We are committed to achieving and maintaining the highest standards of ethical behavior. To do this, we regularly train our employees on what the Code means for them, and their role in helping the Company meet this objective.

We also provide our employees with confidential internal communication channels that they can use to report concerns about potential violations of our Code in confidence and without fear of retaliation.

If you have any questions about compliance at JTI or the way we do business, please contact us.
