Sustainability - PMI's Long-Term Commitment 

We've set ourselves ambitious sustainability targets, and we've made great progress in addressing human rights issues, labor rights, the environment, and anti-corruption.

Adopting good agricultural practices. Tackling complex socioeconomic challenges in tobacco-growing communities. Caring about our environmental footprint. Fighting illicit trade. We aim to be a world-class company in all areas of social responsibility. 

Our sustainability efforts touch on every aspect of our value chain from the farmers who grow tobacco to the 150 million consumers who choose our products.
