At Philip Morris International (PMI), we are transforming our company and focusing on a portfolio of smoke-free products to replace cigarettes as soon as possible with scientifically substantiated better products for adult smokers who don’t quit.
We are also investing in our people: we have more than 1,180 scientists, engineers, technicians, and support staff, each working in different, complex areas, and all playing a role in helping us to deliver a smoke-free future. Here, you’ll meet some of the people behind our science.
PMIScience.com is operated by Philip Morris International for the purpose of publishing and disseminating scientific information about Philip Morris International’s efforts to develop and assess products that have the potential to reduce individual risk and population harm associated with tobacco use. This site is for use by scientists, the public health and regulatory communities, and other stakeholders with an interest in tobacco policy. The purpose of this site is not for advertising or marketing. It is not intended for use by consumers.
Reduced Risk Products ("RRPs”) is the term we use to refer to products that present, are likely to present, or have the potential to present less risk of harm to smokers who switch to these products versus continuing smoking. PMI has a range of RRPs in various stages of development, scientific assessment and commercialization. Our RRPs are smoke-free products that produce an aerosol that contains far lower quantities of harmful and potentially harmful constituents than found in cigarette smoke.
