Response by JTI

To: Business and Human Rights Resource Centre

In response to an inquiry from the Business and Human Rights Resource Centre on our business activities in Belarus, we would like to make it clear that as a responsible international company, we are committed to comply with all applicable laws, to follow the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and to fight all forms of illegal trade. In every country we operate, we follow a strict code of conduct with operational guidelines and supplier standards, which require our business partners to respect human rights and fight illegal trade, among other conditions.
