Philip Morris International is recognized as a global leader in its action on climate change by the CDP, formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project.
For the third consecutive year, the company is on the CDP’s ‘Climate A List’ for taking comprehensive action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate climate change, and for its transparent disclosure process.
The CDP is the leading international not-for-profit organization assessing the work of companies worldwide in the area of climate change. Thousands of businesses submit annual climate disclosures to CDP for independent assessment against its scoring methodology.
Commenting on the results, PMI’s Head of Environmental Sustainability, Andy Harrop, said:
“We’re very pleased to be included on the CDP A List again, and remain dedicated to playing our part in limiting global warming. Building on the reduction of 200,000 tons of CO2 since 2010 across our operations, and our continued action to promote sustainable tobacco production and environmental improvements across our value chain, next year we will announce a suite of new targets based directly on climate science.”
The Climate A List, along with the climate scores of all companies publicly taking part in CDP’s climate change program this year, is available on CDP’s website.
