As a leading multinational that manufactures and sells products in over 180 countries, PMI has a complex environmental footprint that needs to be managed. That’s why we have ambitious targets to reduce emissions, including a long-term commitment to tackle climate change. We’re proud of the longevity of our programs, the comprehensive disclosure of our activities and our tangible results. We surpassed our aim for 20-percent lower fossil-fuel-related emissions from manufacturing operations by the end of 2016 – actually achieving 27%. Now we’re targeting a 30% reduction in our carbon footprint across our whole value chain by 2020.
Improvements in our factories range from small – or even zero-cost measures – to large-scale process changes
ISO 14001 is the pre-eminent international standard for environmental management, providing us with a consistent framework for managing our environmental impact. Ninety-three percent of our factories worldwide are ISO 14001 certified.
PMI has been recognized as a ‘Climate A-Lister’ for the 5th year running by CDP.
We are committed to sustainable water management to help conserve this resource globally. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, find out more!
