We are dedicated to doing something very dramatic - we want to replace cigarettes with smoke-free products as fast as possible. That's why we have more than 400 scientists, engineers, and technicians developing Reduced-Risk Products (see definition below) at our two research facilities in Switzerland and Singapore. It's the biggest shift in our history. And it's the right one for our consumers, our company, our shareholders, and society.
Philip Morris is the world’s leading international tobacco company, with six of the world's top 15 international brands and products sold in more than 180 markets. In addition to the manufacture and sale of cigarettes, including the number one global cigarette brand, PMI is engaged in the development and commercialization of Reduced-Risk Products (“RRPs”). RRPs is the term PMI uses to refer to products with the potential to reduce individual risk and population harm in comparison to smoking cigarettes. Through multidisciplinary capabilities in product development, state-of-the-art facilities, and industry-leading scientific substantiation, PMI aims to provide an RRP portfolio that meets a broad spectrum of adult smoker preferences and rigorous regulatory requirements.
