Our performance at a glance
The ESG metrics on this page are explained in the relevant sections of our Integrated Report 2020 and in additional communications available on our website. Find out more in our ESG highlights, and please also refer to the glossary.
The performance tables available on this page are extracted from our PMI Integrated Report 2020. Unless otherwise indicated, the scope of the data covers our operations worldwide for the full calendar year 2020 or reflects the status as of December 31, 2020. Aspirational targets and goals do not constitute financial projections, and achievement of future results is subject to risks, uncertainties and inaccurate assumptions, as outlined in our forward-looking and cautionary statements available on page 145 of our Integrated Report 2020.

1 The information is a summary and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full texts of PMI’s Annual Reports for the years ended 2018 through 2020, available on PMI.com.
2 This indicator refers to the amount paid by PMI entities, and excludes excise tax paid in several markets where third-party operators collected taxes on PMI products. The total amount of excise tax paid by consumers on PMI products amounted to USD 72.4 billion in 2020.
3 The decline in 2020 full-year net revenues was partly driven by unfavorable currency and the impact of the deconsolidation of PMI’s Canadian subsidiary, Rothmans, Benson & Hedges, Inc. (RBH), effective March 22, 2019.

1 Data refer to parent companies.
2 Control Union assessment in Argentina was performed before COVID-19; others were postponed to 2021.
3 As we progress with the external independent analysis, the percentage of farmers achieving a living income is currently basedon a combination of external living income benchmarks, farmer income studies, and PMI internal data.
4 2020 onward, we report on all types of child labor (hazardous work performed by children, light work performed by children below 13, and children below 15 hired).
5 We introduced this category of prompt actions in 2019.
6 2020 onward, we report on all types of child labor (hazardous work performed by children, light work performed by children below 13, and children below 15 hired).
7 2020 onward, we report on all types of child labor. This indicator refers to incidents of child labor that were recorded by field technicians as prompt actions during the crop season.
8 This indicator was introduced in 2020, based on a new methodology giving us improved visibility on child labor across our sourcing markets. The 2020 data include all prompt actions raised and non-conformities reported for all contracted farms monitored for child labor. It also extends beyond hazardous tasks performed by children to cover all types of child labor (i.e., including light work performed by children below 13 and children below 15 hired). Furthermore, in the identified priority markets, the methodology combines internal monitoring data with external data (including from third party assessments) to calculate prevalence of child labor. As of 2021, we intend to use and report on this indicator, and stop reporting the proportion of farms monitored found with incidents of child labor.
9 We introduced this category of prompt actions in 2019. Scope is limited to farmers providing accommodation to workers (approximately 8 percent of the total farmer base).
10 We introduced this category of prompt actions in 2019.
Note: The farm-level data related to our tobacco supply chain reported in this report cover 21 out of the 23 countries we source from. It excludes Lebanon and Switzerland.

1 We define a contracted employee as an employee who is under the direct supervision of PMI employees but employed by a temporary employment agency. We define a contractor as a person employed or working on behalf of a thirdparty company contracted by PMI, who remains under the direct supervision of their employer rather than PMI and are often involved in project-specific or outsourcing arrangements. The scope of our reporting on contractors in 2020 excludes our site in South Korea (representing less than 1 percent of the total contractor population), where local legislation does not permit this monitoring.
2 Integrated total recordable incident rate (iTRIR) covers PMI employees, contracted employees, and contractors.
3 Indicator introduced in 2020. Scope covers PMI’s working tool cars (representing 75 percent of PMI’s total fleet).
4 Scope: Manufacturing facilities producing more than three billion cigarette equivalents annually.
5 Indicator introduced in 2020. Based on answers from employees as part of our regular employee. The indicator represents the percentage of employees who responded “good” or “very good” to the question “How would you rate your current psychological or emotional well-being at present?” in our regular employee listening survey.
The 2020 metrics for our health & safety indicators are subject to external verification by SGS (see the External verification Statement).

1 Emissions from PMI operated IQOS stores are excluded from scope 1 and 2 emissions, as de minimis.
2 We include warehouses in PMI offices.
3 In 2020, we reviewed our carbon footprint model, taking into account more primary data from suppliers and updating our methodology, leading to more accurate figures for our scope 3 emissions. We have restated our 2019 data according to the new model. Other figures that include scope 3 emissions have also been restate
4 2020 figure includes carbon off-setting certificates purchased in our factories in Lithuania and Switzerland, as well as our Operations Center in Switzerland.
5 Intensity is measured in CO2e per million shipped cigarette equivalent.
Note: Our inventory of GHG emissions (scope 1, 2, and 3) in 2020 is subject to external verification by SGS. In 2020, we achieved significant reductions in emissions, partially driven by COVID-19 impact (page 102 of PMI Integrated Report 2020) but also by accelerated efforts toward our carbon neutrality ambition.

|Proportion of packaging material that is recyclable4||94.9%||94.9%||94.7%||100% by 2025|

1 The effective recycling rate is calculated based on the proportion of IQOS device sales volume overed by the CIRCLE program multiplied by the recycling rate of IQOS devices at the CIRCLE hubs (weighted average).
2 Recycling rate: Percentage of the weight of each device that is recycled, weighted-average depending on device type and processing facility (figures provided for PMI-developed products processed through CIRCLE hubs, varied by device type, zero landfill, remainder to energy recovery or material loss).
3 We established our two recycling CIRCLE hubs in 2018. We expanded the number of markets covered by CIRCLE in 2019 and 2020, the decrease in coverage of sales volume is explained by IQOS growth in markets not yet covered by the program.
4 2018–2020 volume has been restated to include shipping cases.
5 Includes portfolio/volume mix and inventory movement. Includes shipping cases.2019 figure restated due to revised actual figures on amounts of board purchased.

1 To align to most-widely accepted definitions and metrics on measuring forest protection impacts, we decided to adopt the definition of “high conservation value” forests coming from the Accountability Framework Initiative. Please see our Zero Deforestation Manifesto for definitions.

1 Water intensity is measured in m3 per million cigarettes produced equivalent.
2 Fines above USD 10,000 (or equivalent in converted currency). 2020 fine pertained to sewage water contamination exceeding national limitations in our factory in Ukraine
3 Blue water refers to water used for irrigation.
