As the year draws to a close it’s a good time to reflect on how much has changed and how we’ve adapted to the new reality. Never before has health and economics been discussed so much – in the one conversation! The work of Tobacco Free Portfolios has always sat between the world of finance and health. We have worked constantly to bring the facts to the attention of finance leaders and ask them to support global health by going tobacco-free.
Throughout COVID-19, many leaders have made the decision to do their bit to ensure their investments and strategies align with global health goals. Our flagship initiative, the Tobacco-Free Finance Pledge, launched just over 2 years ago, now has 156 Signatories from more than 20 countries, representing US$11 Trillion.
