IBM values our 15-year relationship with Philip Morris International for many reasons. Primary among those are PMI’s mission – Unsmoke Your World – which is good for society, a culture which starts from a position of trust, and an approach to supplier management that invites innovation and experimentation in the name of business outcomes.

Supplier Quality Management

The Supplier Quality Management process ensures that suppliers providing goods and services to PMI are in compliance with PMI and regulatory requirements, as well as with applicable quality standards.

We also expect all of our suppliers to implement the PMI Responsible Sourcing Principles in a diligent and transparent manner. In particular, we call on them to:

  • Implement processes or leverage on existing systems that enable suppliers to identify, avoid or mitigate risks and impacts, in their own operations and in their business relationships
  • Assess their operations and supply chain against the Responsible Sourcing Principles or any similar standards based on the United Nations Global Compact and the United Nations Guiding Principles
  • Communicate and actively engage with their workers, suppliers and stakeholders, so that they can draw attention to potential concerns. Please click on the link to learn more about our Responsible Sourcing Principles

 

We are gradually on-boarding suppliers via an external platform, Achilles, using a risk-based approach, to deliver our due diligence framework in practice.
