Philip Morris is on the list as exploiting animals because of its usage of animals in testing its products.
While health officials have known for decades that smoking cigarettes causes disease and that animal tests are poor predictors of these effects, tobacco companies continue to force animals to smoke, even though more effective alternatives exist. Philip Morris International continues to conduct smoking experiments on animals.
Philip Morris International Inc. is an American global cigarette and tobacco company, with products sold in over 180 countries outside the United States. The most recognized and best selling product of the company is Marlboro. The company’s operational headquarters are in Lausanne, Switzerland, although the corporate headquarters remain in New York. It does not operate in the United States, with Philip Morris brands there still owned by PMI’s former owner Altria.
