UN: Tobacco control is a major component of environmental protection efforts

06.09.2018 21:57 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) As of this week, Dr. Vera Luiza da Costa e Silva, Head of the WHO FCTC Secretariat, has said that presently the tobacco products and their use by consumers is «tremendously destructive» for the environment, leading to deforestation, soil degradation and pollution globally, UN Radio reports. As to the report, she admitted some ceratin control measures can help curb the tobacco industry negative environmental effects, including the damaging impact of climate change. It is to be noted, the WHO FCTC is the World Health Organization Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. It is a global health treaty that advocates for the control of tobacco production, sale and use, as a way of reducing tobacco-related illnesses, deaths, environmental degradation and poverty across the world. This year it is celebrating the 15th anniversary of its being adopted. «People often immediately think of the health impact that tobacco has, but there is not enough awareness of how tremendously destructive it is for the environment too, on land, under water and in the air,» she said. «Tobacco giants have been lobbying worldwide for policies that exonerate them from any environmental responsibility,» she stressed. «But ultimately, tobacco producers should be responsible for liability, economic costs and provision of information on the environmental impacts of their activities,» she added.
