This report sets out the tobacco industry’s work and contribution in the UK: the thousands of high value jobs it creates; the network of some 35,000 small shops in every single constituency in the UK that it sustains; its significant investment in research and development, particularly in cutting edge next generation products such as e-cigarettes and its contribution of more than £12 billion each and every year to the Exchequer.

The report also highlights the work that the industry undertakes with local councils, not-for-profit organisations and retailers up and down the country to address areas such as smoking-related litter, youth access prevention to tobacco and the illegal tobacco trade.

This report also sets out our views on regulation, what works and what doesn’t. The UK tobacco industry is not opposed to regulation. However, we believe that all legislation that affects businesses and their supply chains should be considered carefully and dispassionately; it should be proportionate and evidence-based; and it should be made transparently, with the full engagement of the industry in question.
