Sustainability policy proposals affecting the tobacco and nicotine sector in the EU, August 2022

In the EU the tobacco and nicotine industry is increasingly under regulatory compliance pressure with new rules that introduce obligations. Not only will companies be required to adapt to a new framework that applies to all other industries, but industry-specific negative environmental externalities and greenwashing techniques are in the spotlight more and more.

In this report, TobaccoIntelligence has identified the 11 EU initiatives we consider to be the most impactful for the sector. According to our analysis, among the initiatives we are tracking, the new rules on batteries, plastics, and electronics are likely to substantially increase the regulatory burden on the sector.
