In order to successfully achieve our company’s mission, we must engage and partner with external stakeholders including governments, legislators, regulators, and other interest groups. We believe that public policy engagement is an important and appropriate role for companies in open societies, when conducted in a legal and ethical manner. Our company values underpin how we operate throughout our business, including our external engagements.
The use of company resources for political and public policy activities can be an important issue for our stakeholders. As such, Juul Labs makes the following voluntary disclosures regarding these activities.
Juul Labs is a member of several membership and trade groups that represent both our specific issues, along with issues of general concern to the business community at large. This includes the UK Vaping Industry Association and the Independent European Vape Alliance.
These groups exist to help address broad policy issues that can impact our business objectives and ability to serve adult smokers. Juul Labs’ participation as a member of these various groups comes with the understanding that we may not always agree with the positions of the larger organisation and/or other members, and that we are committed to voicing our concerns as appropriate through our colleagues who serve on the boards and committees of these groups.
