On World No Tobacco Day – 31 May 2022 – we were thrilled to learn that Tobacco Free Portfolios had received a WHO Director-General Special Award for accomplishments in tobacco control. We’re delighted to accept this award and are extremely proud of the efforts of our small but mighty team. Despite many challenges, we’ve made enormous progress in encouraging the finance sector to reject tobacco. Our flagship initiative – the Tobacco-Free Finance Pledge – now has almost 200 signatories, including many of the world’s largest financial institutions. Together, they control more than US$16 trillion. We’d like to congratulate and thank the other individuals, groups and organisations also recognised in this year’s awards.
