Report:Human rights in the tobacco fields – a brief on Swedish Match’s and investors’ risk management
Author: Swedwatch, Published on: 3 July 2016
The human rights challenges within the tobacco industry are widely recognised and well documented. Nevertheless, tobacco companies have not yet succeeded in addressing them...Swedish Match has credible policies in place but should, in alignment with the UNGP, increase the transparency surrounding its supply chain. Swedwatch furthermore encourages Swedish Match to extend its stakeholder dialogue to also include the most vulnerable groups of the tobacco supply chain; the people working in the tobacco fields...The existing lack of transparency surrounding tobacco supply chains limits investors and owners to use their leverage. The opaqueness also lessens investors’ possibility to contribute to increased respect for human rights with the tobacco industry.
