Advisory Panel

The Advisory Panel is a body of experts that provides strategic advice and independent, third-party opinion on the design and development of the Index.

The Advisory Panel is composed of experts with knowledge of the healthcare industry, the tobacco industry, public policy, investment, sustainability standards, corporate responsibility, and business ethics, as well as corporate transparency and disclosure best practices. The Panel provides strategic advice on governance, design, and promulgation of the Index. In addition, it publishes a public statement on these matters alongside the release of the Index.

The Panel operates independently from the Foundation for a Smoke-Free World and without any industry involvement. It serves strictly in an advisory capacity. As such, the Panel does not have any formal decision-making authority, but is tasked with closely reviewing the governance and development of the Index and making recommendations on an ongoing basis to help ensure the Index aligns with international good practice and addresses the material concerns of interested and affected stakeholders. Authority on Index matters addressed by the Panel remains with the Foundation.

In the future, the Panel will be supplemented by an Expert Review Committee that will advise on technical matters associated with the Index.
