We use the term Commercial Integrity to describe a range of issues that impact RAI's businesses and employees. Some affect our ability to compete fairly in the marketplace, such as our efforts to reduce illicit trade in tobacco products. Others affect how we choose to conduct our businesses, like supply chain partnerships. Still others affect the communities in which our employees live and work, such as our philanthropic and environmental initiatives.
Making continued progress towards Commercial Integrity goals helps ensure that RAI's companies are working to resolve controversial issues related to the use of tobacco products.
