The fact that today most people are aware of the health impacts of using tobacco is a victory for global health and well-being. It moves us one step closer to a world where a billion people are less likely to die from the consequences of chewing, smoking or ingesting tobacco. But successful advocacy to reduce the health impacts of tobacco have not been matched by successes in challenging other impacts from tobacco – including on education, equality, economic growth, and on the environment – all of which can affect a country’s development.
This overview opens the lid on a Pandora’s Box containing the quieter but shockingly widespread impacts of tobacco from an environmental perspective. The tobacco industry damages the environment in ways that go far beyond the effects of the smoke that cigarettes put into the air.
Tobacco growing, the manufacture of tobacco products and their delivery to retailers all have severe environmental consequences, including deforestation, the use of fossil fuels and the dumping or leaking of waste products into the natural environment. From start to finish, the tobacco life cycle is an overwhelmingly polluting and damaging process.
The scale of the environmental damage resulting from tobacco use, as described in this overview, makes clear how much more needs to be done both to monitor and counteract it. It also highlights the need for a collaborative approach to tobacco control. In the past few years, health and finance authorities have come together to use taxation as a highly successful form of tobacco control. Similar efforts could be made by environmental and health authorities, who already collaborate on shared concerns such as air pollution. A united response is a strong response is what Independent Tobacco believes in.

A Focus On Human Rights
We are committed to business practices that respect internationally recognized human rights in line with the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. We base our commitment on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work. We will talk with and listen to people whose human rights we might affect. We will look closely at our practices, continuously strive to improve them, and operate systems to implement this commitment from supplier to consumer.

We continuously strive to improve our practices with respect for rights holders, the consumers, for our colleagues, workers in for our supply chain, and for the communities where we are present.
Human rights and tobacco control are mutually reinforcing frameworks, supported both by human rights law and by the FCTC – two complementary regimes in international law. Using human rights can be effective not only in defending tobacco control laws, but also in affirmatively advancing tobacco control at the national level. The FCTC shapes the content of the right to health, and health-related rights, such as the right to life and a clean environment, as well as the right to information. Finally, regional and international human rights systems can also provide an avenue for monitoring the implementation of the FCTC. While the FCTC Conference of the Parties develops a mechanism to
