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.

During the 2021 Global Tobacco and Nicotine Forum (GTNF) in London, key stakeholders discussed the Tobacco Transformation Index and its potential to become a valuable tool for investors and the implications for environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing.
