Vapor Technology Association Joins Founding of New Global Vape Alliance to Combat Misinformation
Published on October 8, 2023
Launch marked with a historic Declaration to effect responsible and positive change on a global scale
A new Global Vape Alliance representing the future of vaping has been announced, with a Declaration aiming to foster collaboration, promote responsible vaping practices, and champion the cause of harm reduction in the e-cigarette industry.
The Global Vape Alliance brings together major international vaping bodies including the Electronic Cigarette Industry Committee of the China Electronics Chamber of Commerce (ECCC), the US Vapor Technology Association (VTA), the “UK Vaping Industry Association (UKVIA)” and the Independent European Vape Alliance (IEVA).
The historic Declaration underscores the power of unity within the global vaping industry, with a commitment to public health, environmental sustainability, and the wellbeing of smokers seeking alternatives like e-cigarettes to traditional tobacco products.
Key highlights of the Global Vape Alliance Declaration include:
- Regulatory Compliance: Facilitate the sharing of best practices to ensure member companies adhere to existing vaping laws, regulations, and industry standards, with a strong focus on responsible marketing and protecting youth.
- Industry Promotion: Elevate the e-cigarette industry’s professionalism, importance, and sustainability by fostering communication among industry stakeholders and encouraging technological innovation in vaping devices.
- Public Health: Emphasising harm reduction by promoting the adoption of vaping products among conventional smokers to reduce harm, while openly providing information about the health effects of vaping and its impact on physical health.
- Environment Protection: the Alliance will advocate for eco-friendly strategies in vaping, promote recycling, low-carbon design, and urge compliance with environmental laws related to vaping products.
Vapor Technology Association firmly believes that unity and cooperation within the vaping industry can lead to a world without smoking.
Tony Abboud, Executive Director of the Vapor Technology Association, said: “Despite the enormous body of science that has declared vaping nicotine dramatically safer than smoking, the vapor industry’s detractors around the globe push a dramatically misinformed narrative. Declaring a shared commitment to furthering sound science, truthful information about vaping safety, and a commitment to meaningful regulations, industry leaders around the world can better serve companies and, more importantly, millions of consumers using vaping products to reduce and/or quit smoking cigarettes.“
