pakistan tobacco company - Corporate social responsibility

At Pakistan Tobacco Company we aim to demonstrate responsible corporate conduct across all aspects of our operations.

We abide by this philosophy each step of the way: from appropriate marketing and consumer information to supporting sensible tobacco regulation; from respecting workplace human rights and reducing our environmental impact to contributing to local communities. We seek to work continuously to engage with our stakeholders, to balance their views and to align our business decision-making with the reasonable societal expectations of a modern tobacco company.

We recognise that Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) presents particular challenges for a tobacco company. Tobacco products pose real risks to health and raise important questions about how best to define responsible product stewardship. We, therefore, believe that for our business, the only meaningful approach to CSR is one based squarely on our products, on the issues around them and on ways of responding to the sometimes strongly held views of our stakeholders.

We also hope that more corporations include CSR in their strategic planning processes and understand that their businesses provoke a social cost which has to be balanced by keeping in mind the interests of all the stakeholders and communities involved.

In this section, we outline some of our social initiatives in Pakistan. If you require any further information regarding CSR at Pakistan Tobacco Company, please feel free to contact us .
