Our companies play an active role in protecting our natural resources and reducing our environmental impact.
We understand the affect our companies and their products may have on our environment, including changes to water quality and availability and climate change, as well as the effect these changes in nature have on our companies. That’s why we set long term environmental goals and regularly share progress.
Altria's Environmental Goals
In 2016, Altria established new long-term goals to reduce our environmental impact by the end of 2025. In 2018, we added a Scope 3 goal for 2030 and formally committed to the Science Based Targets initiative to help keep a rise in global temperature to well below 2ºC. Our progress prior to 2016 can be found here.
