Philip Morris International exposed

Tobacco giant Philip Morris International (PMI) is employing tactics to block the the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control’s (FCTC) lifesaving measures,  says a report released Wednesday by Corporate Accountability International (CAI).

PMI held its annual shareholders’ meeting Wednesday, welcoming the company’s US$27 billion revenue in 2010.

CAI says that measures used by PMI to obstruct the FCTC – the global tobacco treaty that has 172 Parties representing 87 per cent of the world’s population – include:

  • Litigation
  • Circumventing advertising bans
  • Partnering with governments
  • Establishing front groups
