Philip Morris International

Philip Morris International (PMI) is leading a transformation in the tobacco industry to create a smoke-free future and ultimately replace cigarettes with smoke-free products to the benefit of adults who would otherwise continue to smoke, society, the company and its shareholders. We've set ambitious sustainability targets, and we've made great progress in addressing human rights issues, labor rights, the environment, and anti-corruption. Our sustainability strategy is structured around four pillars at the core of our overall business— Transforming our Business, Driving Operational Excellence, Managing our Social Impact, Reducing our Environmental Footprint— and touch on every aspect of our value chain, from the farmers who grow tobacco to the 150 million consumers who choose our products.
