Philip Morris awarded ‘A List’ ranking in climate change report

A Global Leaders Report issued this week by CDP (formerly ‘the Carbon Disclosure Project’) has awarded Philip Morris International Inc. (PMI) a Band A rating, a Leadership Status for Carbon Performance and a 96% score for Carbon Disclosure based on the company’s activities to mitigate climate change in its supply chain in 2013.

According to PMI, this is the company’s best score ever in the CDP ratings, with PMI the only tobacco company to make the ‘A list’. “Environmental sustainability is central to our business strategy. We have established ambitious emission reduction targets and work closely with every participant in our value chain to deliver against these targets. Our excellent results in this year’s CDP Leaders Report are an important and welcome recognition of our efforts,” said Chief Executive Officer, André Calantzopoulos.

This week PMI also announced its decision to support the CDP ‘Road to Paris 2015’ initiative to receive business community endorsement of long-term carbon emission reduction targets that are scientifically sound and consistent with limiting global warming.
