"Philip Morris Ltd. is a very supportive workplace. A place that advocates professional and personal development, provides job security and various promotion options".
"We believe that companies don't make history; people make history."
Our success largely depends on exceptional people who come to work every day with a passion for making a change, or in other words - making history. The group engages around 79,800 employees in more than 180 countries worldwide. They work in a global and dynamic environment, conduct daily interactions with colleagues from around the world, and travel for assignments and long-term missions in other countries.
On the other hand, dozens of people from different countries visit and work at the company's Israeli headquarters in Tel Aviv. Such a work environment presents many promotion opportunities while receivings recognition from employees as well as external organizationsPhilip Morris International has repeatedly been awarded the title of "Top Employer" over the last few years; it is one of the most prestigious honors in the field of employment. The recognition is given to multinational companies that provide excellent employment conditions, nurture employees and work consistently to promote and improve the field of human resources.
Implementing the principles of corporate responsibility across various areas that express the values we believe in is an integral part of the company's strategy in Israel and the world. Our work includes aligning to the UN's sustainability goals and timelines. Last year, we became the first tobacco company in Israel to publish a Corporate Responsibility Report focusing on equality, environmental responsibility, and community. The report details the company's position and actions on topics such as reducing environmental impacts, community responsibility, involvement and volunteering, organizational ethics, striving for gender equality and empowering women, promoting economic growth and ensuring adequate employment, reducing inequality, eradicating poverty, and more.
Sustainability and environmental impact
We have a significant commitment and a sense of responsibility for the environment in which we operate. We view our investment in sustainability as a means to minimize negative side effects and environmental impacts resulting from the company's operation, and aim to create long-term value.
Proper environmental management is something we care about deeply and in which we invest substantial efforts and resources. From actions like replacing disposable plastic products with biodegradable ones, separating waste, and recycling and prioritizing "green" procurement (even at a higher price), to more robust measures like making our fleet of vehicles hybrid, saving on electrical energy, and following the standards of "green construction" in our facilities.
Our external efforts include supporting charities (such as ״Zalul Environmental Association״ and the "Friends for Health Association") and raising awareness for the preservation and cleanliness of parks and beaches in Israel. Employee volunteering efforts on International Environment Day resulted in collecting tens of thousands of cigarette butts and distributing dedicated bins for collecting cigarette butts. We ran campaigns and activities to guide thousands of businesses on reducing their environmental impacts and using recyclable products; this included recognition and reward for participating businesses and more.
Empowering the local economy, volunteering, and contributing to the community
We cooperate with law enforcement agencies and other entities to prevent illegal trade and a black market of smuggling and tax evasion. This activity strengthens local businesses and directly impacts state revenues from the taxation of tobacco products. In addition, we prioritize Israeli procurement that supports the local economy over out-of-state suppliers.
We promote social values alongside change, innovation, and continuous improvement. In other words, social involvement and contribution to the community are as important to us as business success and bringing value to our customers.
