Philip Morris International makes call to Creative, Media and Communications Communities

Philip Morris International, announced a call to action for the creative, media and communications communities to embrace its ongoing commitment to creating a smoke-free world.

As part of this initiative, PMI will offer smoke-free alternatives wherever we can, including heated tobacco products and e-cigarettes, to current smokers in the industry who would otherwise continue to smoke.

During a keynote at the pmi Science Lounge at The Cannes Festival of Creativity, SVP of Communications Marian Salzman said, “We are asking the creative community to join us in raising awareness of the potential of science, technology and innovation for those who smoke and the people around them”. The move is part of PMI’s vision to lead the charge towards greater innovation and technology in the tobacco industry, all of which is backed by science.

Agencies interested in joining the movement can contact Marian Salzman (in the picture) at marian.salzman@pmi.com.

Emakina Group, an independent group of communication agencies in Europe, is the first agency network to declare its commitment to a smoke-free future by pledging support to the initiative across its 13 offices.
