The Tobacco Transformation Index®

The Tobacco Transformation Index® aims to accelerate the reduction of harm caused by tobacco use. The Index ranks the world’s 15 largest tobacco companies on their relative progress toward harm reduction.

What Are Tobacco Companies Selling Where Reduced-Risk Products Are Legal?

Index research indicates that tobacco companies do not consistently sell reduced-risk products (RRPs) in countries where they are legally allowed and also sell high-risk products (HRPs).

What Is the Tobacco Transformation Index®?

The Index is a tool to accelerate the necessary transformation of the global tobacco industry for the benefit of public health.

By monitoring and critically evaluating tobacco companies’ behavior, including actions that either support or impede tobacco harm reduction, the Index provides objective, transparent information to all stakeholders and incentivizes companies to act more quickly and responsibly than they otherwise would.

This short animation explains how the Index can encourage industry transformation and accelerate tobacco harm reduction.
