Effective environmental management across our operations and value chain goes beyond compliance with applicable laws and regulations. We are committed to constantly improve our business activities to achieve the highest standards of environmental sustainability, in line with our Environmental Commitment.

While improving the environmental performance of our manufacturing operations is key, the majority of our environmental impacts arise elsewhere in our value chain, especially in tobacco growing and curing, and with consumer waste. Working collaboratively with tobacco growers, suppliers, retailers, NGOs, and governments is key to the success of our environmental programs and to achieving our targets.
