Welcome to Philip Morris International's (PMI) affiliates in Poland. We are the leading tobacco company in the country, manufacturing three of the ten best-selling cigarette brands in the Polish market. However, we decided to be far more than a leading cigarette company. We’re building PMI’s future on smoke-free products, such as IQOS, that are a much better choice than cigarette smoking.
The history of PMI's brands in Poland began in 1973 when PMI signed a licensing agreement with Zakłady Przemysłu Tytoniowego w Krakowie (ZPTK) to produce Marlboro. In 1996, PMI acquired shares of ZPTK from the State Treasury, and the company was renamed Philip Morris Polska S.A. in 1998.
IQOS, Marlboro, L&M, Chesterfield
Today we employ more than 3,000 people in the company’s factory and offices in Krakow, Warsaw and in our distribution centers across the country. Over the past several years, we have invested more than USD 700 million in the modernization of our manufacturing center and development of our organization and employees. That is why now we have one of the most modern PMI factories in Europe.
In 2005, PMI Service Center Europe (PMI SCE) was established in Krakow, which provides specialized financial, human resources, information technology, and procurement services for PMI affiliates in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
It is of the utmost importance for us to act with integrity, social responsibility, and in compliance with all applicable rules and regulations.
Water is a shared and precious resource that is essential for life. In 2019 the World Economic Forum listed water scarcity, the lack of sufficient available water to meet usage demands, as the largest global risk of the 21st century. Water scarcity is triggered by water-related risks such as overexploitation, pollution, unsustainable management and changes in weather patterns due to climate change.
Since 2017, PMI has introduced amongst its main sustainability pillars the Alliance for Water Stewardship (or AWS) Certification in order to reduce the water footprint its factories and drive sustainable water management amongst local territories. In order to demonstrate its commitment to water stewardship, PMI plans to certify all facilities according to the AWS Standard by 2025.
Philip Morris Poland in Krakow is proud to announce its journey towards the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) Certification. The AWS Certification is based on a globally applicable standard that enables water users reduce water consumption, mitigate water-related risk and manage water collaboratively and transparently with Stakeholders operating in the surrounding territory. Upon achievement of this important milestone, Philip Morris Poland in Krakow will be the second ever site in Poland to be certified AWS.
The audit will be performed on 9-11.12.2020 by Mrs. Gabriela Procyk, Environment, Health & Safety, Environmental Protection Specialist, SGS POLSKA SP. Z O.O.
