Our portfolio includes brands such as Marlboro and L&M, which are made in our factory in Santa Cruz do Sul (RS). Approximately 3,000 dedicated and talented people work for Philip Morris Brazil across our locations, including over 1,600 employees in our factory. In addition, we are one of the major tobacco leaf buyers in Brazil.
We take our role in the local communities in which we operate very seriously and actively support initiatives to promote education and prevent child labor in tobacco growing areas.
We have recently updated our integrated management policy.
We also intend to achieve the four principles of water stewardship and in March 2018 our factory in Santa Cruz do Sul was certified to the AWS Standard.
