According to the International Labor Organization, the largest share of child labor occurs in the agricultural sector: Around 108 million children are impacted worldwide, involved in different forms of hazardous work.

Together with the NGO Verité, we have developed a comprehensive approach to addressing child labor wherever we source tobacco.
