We have adopted environmental policies that provide specific environmental guidance for employees. These policies address topics including air emissions; environmental assessment; hazardous materials; and waste, wastewater and storm water management.
We are managing our business to support Altria's 2016 goal targets based on a 2011 baseline:
- reduce energy use by 10 percent;
- reduce Scope 1 and Scope 2 Greenhouse Gas emissions by 20 percent;
- achieve 50 percent water neutrality;
- achieve 95 percent recycle rate from our facilities and five percent waste to landfill; and
- remove 5 million pounds of packaging materials from our products.
John Middleton is fully integrated into Altria's environmental management framework.
