JTI: A caring corporate citizen

JTI – a member of the JT Group of Companies – is a leading global tobacco company with operations in more than 130 countries, including Cambodia.

In Cambodia, JTI has been acknowledged by Prime Minister Hun Sen as one of the largest taxpayers in the Kingdom, contributing to the development and growth of the Cambodian national economy.

JTI Cambodia is also the first company in the country to have been certified as a Global Top Employer for two consecutive years by the Top Employers Institute in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

It also became one of the first companies in the world to be awarded EY’s Global Equality Standard certificate, which measures equal opportunities and equal pay in the workplace.

Parents at JTI, regardless of gender, receive five months of fully paid leave to take care of their family when they welcome a newborn child.

Investing in communities is a business priority for JTI. Together with its employees, it has supported the community during the Covid-19 outbreak by providing food packages to vulnerable families.

JTI has significantly supported people with disabilities, senior citizens and the homeless, and provided assistance for communities who suffered from flooding.

It further invests in environmental sustainability by implementing tree planting and recycling projects with its partners.

As a respectful and compliant Japanese company operating in Cambodia, JTI will continue to contribute to the socioeconomic growth of the Kingdom in the years to come.
