The life cycle of a cigarette takes a heavy toll on the environment from growing the tobacco plant to the disposal of butts and packaging. Although the ecological impacts of tobacco are overshadowed by its devastating effects on human health, they are nevertheless considerable and a cause for concern. Tobacco cultivation is responsible for biodiversity losses, land pollution through the use • of pesticides, as well as soil degradation, deforestation and water pollution.1 Tobacco plants consume nutrients at a higher rate than most crops.• Cigarette-manufacturing machines use up to four miles of paper an hour to roll and • package cigarettes. Cigarette butts are washed into rivers, lakes and the ocean where they are eaten by • birds, animals and fish. While the global share of agricultural land used for tobacco growing is less than 1%, its • impact on global deforestation is 2–4%, making a visible footprint for climate change.

Instructor's Reply:
Dear Student

In Pakistani culture mostly smoking/tobacco is seen as a social evil. Govt. also has different regulations regarding tobacco advertisements and has strict health policy. In such strict environments yet companies like Phillip Morris, must have the reasons for its existence the social purposes and social well being, it is serving beside the core business. You are to provide the ethical aspects and consequences of unethical aspects towards the environment. You also have to provide the ethical practices within the company due to which it is still operating its business in such strict environment.

Best of luck
