Since 2016, PMI IMPACT has accrued an ecosystem of grantees, developing innovative solutions to eradicate illegal activities affecting the economy and society at large. To date, it has provided USD 48 million to fund 60 projects in 30 countries.
Through its different funding rounds, the objective of PMI IMPACT is to leverage public-private collaboration and achieve long-term, sustainable results against illegal trade and related crimes.
And there is more to come, as the PMI IMPACT Expert Council—the independent experts evaluating and selecting the projects for the award of grants by PMI—has indicated...
PMI IMPACT is ready to welcome new projects that foster global partnerships and create synergies to enable sustainable solutions in the illegal trade battle.
“It is more important than ever that we continue coming together and exchanging expertise, ideas and opinions around the shared objective of tackling illegal trade,” says Alvise Giustiniani, Vice President Illicit Trade Prevention at Philip Morris International (PMI).
“We will enable others to develop class-leading solutions to tackle illegal trade and the ecosystem of crimes that flourish around it. Cross-sector, public-private collaboration is the key to address the illicit trade problem.”
